The Team

Meet the team that's redefining healthcare delivery

Our Story

In 2016 the idea of HENRY was derived from the personal frustration of the founders trying to find a doctor, optometrist or dentist who took their health insurance and worked hours that would fit a working person’s schedule. The husband and wife team, Justin and Alex immediately saw an opportunity to improve the way healthcare was being delivered. Joining forces with longtime friend Dr. Jeffrey Rappaport, they founded HENRY The Dentist. 1 year later HENRY saw its first patient on September 12, 2017 in New Jersey and they haven’t looked back.
