Jeff Sulitzer, DMD
Jeffrey Sulitzer, DMD, is the Chief Clinical Officer at SmileDirectClub. From the start of his career, Dr. Sulitzer aimed to impact oral health on a large scale. After graduating from the Temple University School of Dentistry in 1985, Dr. Sulitzer spent more than a decade serving as Vice President of US Healthcare’s dental division and worked for several BlueCross BlueShield dental companies growing their businesses through 2012, offering dental insurance to millions of people in the US and increasing access to care. For the past 6 years, Dr Sulitzer has been working in the DSO space in roles from Chief Clinical Officer to Interim CEO.
During this time, he continued to see patients as well in the dental practices he owned from 1986 through 2014. Though his private practice afforded him the luxury of meeting patients in person throughout the years, Dr. Sulitzer was driven to provide dental access to more people utilizing different platforms. SmileDirectClub and the other companies he has worked for in the past have allowed him the unique opportunity to extend his services to tens of thousands of people through the revolutionary teledentistry platform.
