JERSEY, CITY, N.J., Oct. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today HENRY The Dentist (HENRY), a state-of-the-art mobile dental clinic that comes to corporate offices, announced the launch of the service in New Jersey. HENRY works with HR professionals to schedule the mobile clinic at company offices, providing employees with a convenient way to access their in-network dental benefits without them needing to use a half day of PTO.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 36% of Americans have not gone to the dentist in over a year, increasing their risk of later-stage health complications. The most common cited reason for not using their benefits is the hassle of travel time, work hours lost, and finding a trustworthy dental professional. It is estimated that 196 million work hours are lost every year due to traveling to the dentist. The debut of HENRY aims to provide a modern and accessible approach to dentistry by providing a high-end experience right at the patient's place of work.
"HENRY is on a mission to deliver an elevated brand experience directly to our patients, reimagining dentistry to fit the needs of busy working professionals," said Justin Joffe, Founder and CEO of HENRY. "We know many people feel intimidated about going to the dentist, so we spent over a year with our team designing a clinic that's modern and welcoming. We've been thoughtful about every element of the patient experience, to provide an atmosphere that is unexpected from the moment you walk in."
The $125b dental industry is largely an unbranded market, with little or no innovation in the patient experience, which is why HENRY teamed up with renowned architect and design agencies to produce a high-tech service experience inside. Each HENRY clinic is outfitted with a panoramic x-ray, massage dental chairs, Apple TVs with access to Netflix and HBO, and a team of world class dental professionals. HENRY offers its patients a wide array of services including x-ray, exam, cleaning, filling, night guard, teeth whitening, and Invisalign. HENRY is in-network with most major dental carriers, including Delta Dental, Metlife, Guardian, Aetna, Cigna, United, and Horizon.
"Good health starts with oral hygiene, and we want to provide patients with access to the highest quality of professional care," said Dr. Jeffrey Rappaport, Dental Director of HENRY. "We brought together a full-time team of experienced dentists and hygienists for each clinic, ensuring that all our patients receive continuity of care from the same highly-trained dental professionals at every visit."
To date, HENRY has raised $2 million in capital, including from its lead investors Trailmix VC and Brand Foundry Ventures. HENRY plans to have 3 clinics operational in New Jersey by 2018 to meet the high demand from companies. HENRY is currently serving companies throughout New Jersey, with key markets in Parsippany, Florham Park, Livingston, Hoboken, Cherry Hill, and Jersey City.
