LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DentalPlans.com, a leading dental and health savings online marketplace, has been acquired by Internet Brands, where it will join the company’s rapidly growing Health vertical.

Founded in 1999, DentalPlans.com has connected more than 1 million members to dental savings plans and other healthcare benefits providers. The company works with more than 75% of dentists in the United States while offering consumers dozens of dental savings plans from trusted networks. The company also offers vision savings plans, hearing benefits plans, and prescription benefits plans via ancillary product offerings. All products enjoy strong renewal and member satisfaction rates.

Internet Brands’ Health portfolio makes it one of the largest providers of SaaS solutions in the health space. The company serves healthcare professionals across a broad range of practices including the dental space, which is one of Internet Brands’ largest areas of focus. The company owns and operates several businesses that provide web presence, online marketing, and practice management solutions to dental practices across the United States. These include Sesame Communications, Demandforce, Officite, and Baystone Media.

The DentalPlans.com team will remain intact and will continue to operate from its headquarters in Plantation, Florida, under the leadership of DentalPlans.com CEO Bob Harris.
