BOSTON, MA (May 12, 2023) – Overjet, the industry leader in dental artificial intelligence, is proud to share that Overjet CEO and founder Wardah Inam has been named to the Tech Power Players 50, the Boston Globe’s list recognizing the most influential – and interesting – people in the New England technology scene.
In selecting the recipients, the Globe took into account the outstanding leaders whose technology-specific contributions and innovations have kept the industry and Massachusetts vibrant and growing in a challenging economic climate, as well as the leaders who stood out with efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Inam joins executives from Amazon, HubSpot, Wayfair, the state of Massachusetts and other venerable leaders in software, venture capital, energy and beyond who are making an outsized impact on technology and business.
“Massachusetts is a global leader in technology, and we have seen incredible innovation coming from our region,” said Greg Huang, the Globe’s Business and Tech editor. “Ultimately, we wanted the list to tell a story about the local scene and where it is headed, and so the people we selected show the deep roots of our tech community and the new wave of thinkers who will continue to make our region a hub for innovation.”
Under Inam’s leadership, 2022 and 2023 saw extraordinary growth and momentum for Overjet. The company secured multiple landmark FDA clearances and is the only dental AI technology that is FDA-cleared to detect and outline decay (cavities), as well as quantify bone level measurements and detect calculus on radiographs. Today, Overjet’s revolutionary dental AI products are used by some of the largest dental organizations nationwide to deliver outstanding patient care service. The company’s insurance sector customers include many of the major health plans, collectively reaching over 100 million people in the United States. Overjet has also partnered with Medicaid | Medicare | CHIP Services Dental Association (MSDA) to launch the first-ever national Medicaid Artificial Intelligence (AI) learning initiative to advance dental care quality.
Wardah Inam, PhD, CEO and co-founder of Overjet, said: “I am humbled to be included alongside this incredible group of technology leaders who I have deeply admired over the years for their instrumental work building Massachusetts into a thriving innovation and economic hub. I’m honored by the Globe’s recognition of Overjet’s foundational role as the industry leader reshaping the future of dentistry through AI. The entire team at Overjet and our partners are committed to innovating to elevate patient care and improve oral health.”
