“When we first met Overjet, we were immediately impressed with Wardah Inam’s vision of building the intelligence layer for dentistry, ”said Chris bischoff, Managing Director of General Catalyst. “The market traction the team has achieved in such a short period of time is testament to the value of their software solutions. We’re excited to be leading their round of funding once again as they partner with clinicians and insurers to transform patient dental health. “

The company is growing rapidly, surpassing 60 employees in December, and plans to double its workforce over the next 6 months.
