Byte is now the official smile partner for the Seattle Seahawks, according to the company. The collaboration aims to help more people transform their smiles by promoting teledentistry’s role in increasing access to care, Byte said. In fact, the company added, Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs is currently undergoing aligner treatment with Byte.
“At Byte, we’re all about creating winning smiles, and we’re proud to be partnering with the Seattle Seahawks as they kick off a new season,” said Byte president Neeraj Gunsagar. “With their focus on fan safety this fall, we’re excited to bring their fans a safe, remote solution for improving their smiles.”
As an approved partner of the American TeleDentistry Association, Byte’s orthodontist-directed treatment is helping people improve their smiles at a cost that’s 60% less than traditional braces, Byte said. Also, Byte’s HyperByte dental acceleration device makes Byte twice as fast as other teeth straightening systems on the market, the company said, with an average of three months of estimated treatment time and a lifetime guarantee.
“Confidence is a huge part of the game, and Byte’s helping me take mine to the next level,” said Diggs. “From practice to games, I spend a lot of time on the move. Being able to straighten my teeth without having to make time for regular appointments makes the whole process a lot easier.”
This year has been marked by new strategic partnerships for Byte across the board, the company said, from Kerry Washington joining the team as creative advisor and investor to teaming up with Anthem Insurance. Also, the ByteCares program, which aims to improve 10,000 smiles by 2022, is working toward improving accessibility on the West Coast.
