LOS ANGELES, CA–(Jan 26, 2015) – Internet Brands today announced that it has acquired Seattle-based Sesame Communications, a leading provider of cloud-based patient engagement and digital marketing solutions for the dental and orthodontic industries.
Founded in 1999, Sesame Communications is one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the United States. It serves thousands of dental and orthodontic practices with products and services that help them grow their practices.
Sesame Communications joins Internet Brands’ rapidly growing Health portfolio, which includes the Internet’s leading collection of web presence solution providers for health professionals. These include Officite, eDoctors, TherapySites, iMatrix, and Baystone Media.
