Summer Software Developer

About us:
Headquartered in Boston, Virtudent is changing the face of dental healthcare, an industry sector that has not seen change in its care delivery model in over 200 years! This has lead to dental care becoming a $250BN problem – more than all cancer treatments combined and the #1 reason why children miss school in America. The industry is also laden with overtreatment, fraud and abuse, making this simple healthcare need a luxury for those who can access and afford it – until now!!

Virtudent is leveraging telehealth technologies and a new scalable delivery model to bring high-quality dental care to patients who are otherwise foregoing their routine dental visits. No more taking off work or missing school. Our telehealth platform not only leverages the best dentists in the country, but also separates the diagnosing provider from the treatment provider in order to ensure our patients receive non-biased treatment plans that are 100% formulated to promote prevention, wellness and health. We aim to make a traditionally headache-inducing dental experience vastly more cool, convenient, transparent and most importantly – all about the patient!
