Brighter: More Than 75,000 Dentists Now On Platform

Santa Monica-based Brighter, the dental healthcare company led by startup veteran Jake Winebaum, said this morning that it now has almost 75,000 dentists on its marketplace. The company--which lets consumers shop for local dentists--says it has been working with health insurance carriers to integrate into its directory, which had initially been aimed at self paying dental patients. Brighter said that dentists who are in health insurance networks are using the service to highlight their strengths to new patients and take advantage of its "Brighter Score", which rates dental providers based on pricing, patient satisfaction, and other factors.
