“This acquisition is the culmination of our team’s tireless efforts to build a brand in a truly new and disruptive way. We are excited about the synergies that can be realized as DenTek takes the beloved Orabrush brand to the next level by leveraging the Molio model.”

Using its 30+ years of experience developing oral care products, DenTek will promote the Orabrush products in conjunction with its comprehensive suite of products, which include floss picks, interdental brush cleaners, dental guards for nighttime teeth grinding, dental picks/scalers and tongue cleaners. DenTek also plans to leverage its existing retail partnerships to accelerate retail expansion of the Orabrush products beyond their current availability in more than 30,000 stores worldwide.

“We are thrilled to welcome Orabrush to our family of innovative oral care products,” said David Fox, President and CEO of DenTek. “Orabrush has a strong patent portfolio, a proven marketing model and outstanding products that will further strengthen the DenTek family of brands. We look forward to growing and expanding the Orabrush brand, and leveraging the digital video marketing expertise of the Molio team to make these products indispensable to the daily oral care routine.”

Using its proprietary software platform and advertising service, Molio will help DenTek create, optimize and deliver video content to the right target audience.

“There is no better home for Orabrush than with the leader in the interdental category,” said Jeff Davis, President and CEO of Orabrush and newly appointed CEO of Molio. “This acquisition is the culmination of our team’s tireless efforts to build a brand in a truly new and disruptive way. We are excited about the synergies that can be realized as DenTek takes the beloved Orabrush brand to the next level by leveraging the Molio model.”
