Dr. Brown has long worked with top-tier companies, bringing her strategic, clinical, insurtech, and healthtech expertise to companies such as MouthWatch, Dentistry.One, vVardis, Alvarez & Marsal, CareOregon, CareQuest Institute for Oral Health and Innovation Partners, and provider organizations. As a consultant to MouthWatch, a leading intraoral imaging and teledentistry company, she strongly contributed to its spinoff, Dentistry.One, a virtual-first SaaS oral healthcare company offering a nationwide network of on-demand dentists, personalized care coordination, oral health coaching, and a digital connection between medical and dental care.

“I am fortunate to work with visionaries who are building a world where people can realize the benefits of good oral health, but also dedicate the time, energy, and resources to continuously innovate and develop solutions that will help make this vision a reality,” Dr. Brown said. “True innovation, such as Dentistry.One, opens a virtual door to dentistry, providing easy access to the dental care journey so vital to overall wellness. It also comes with deep market knowledge and insights from MouthWatch’s entrepreneurial leadership.”

Her training at Dartmouth during the early days of value-based care and ACO formation are invaluable to her clients in the understanding of big data, diagnostic codes, healthtech and risk-based partnerships. Previously, Dr. Brown held academic positions at 2 dental schools, with more than $20 million in research-related grant funding, and was amongst the first in the country to explore new models of dental care, including mobile and teledentistry.

Dr. Brown is currently chief health innovation officer at MouthWatch and chief dental officer at Dentistry.One, acting dental director at the Health Plan of San Mateo, and co-founder/CFO of Different Kind.
