Marketing Director (9030A)


Our client is a dental healthcare company based in San Francisco, and operated by a team of licensed dental professionals with over 50 combined years of experience in the industry. Their goal is to create a platform of transparency around a painful epidemic that destroys millions of smiles each day: Bruxism – which is the involuntary clenching of the jaw and grinding of the teeth, which mainly occurs while we sleep. Over-The-Counter night guard brands are poor in quality, with dentists offering a custom alternative that requires multiple office visits and high cost of $500-$900. But with our client’s direct-to-consumer approach, you can skip the office visits and have the same dentist-quality custom night guards for 70% less!
