Julie Charlestein

Founder and CEO

izzo’s CEO and Founder, Julie, is Premier Dental’s fourth-generation, youngest-ever, and first-ever female CEO.

Her unstoppable ambition has awarded her with business accolades and the opportunity to bring professionally inspired oral care to people’s everyday lives.

Lil Caperila, RDH, BSDH, M.ED.

Lil Caperila always wanted a career that would make people smile. While stand-up comedian or Rockette haven’t panned out yet, her 41 years as a dental hygienist certainly have! A master of putting smiles in the spotlight, Lil attracts attention from the dental community with knowledge and spirit that Hollywood or Broadway never could.

Thinking Outside the Dentist's Office

“You need to think bigger.” That is what my friend said to me at a basketball game in Miami back in 2018. 

At the time, I was trying to figure out a way to take a professional product we had developed to the consumer. What did Premier have that could translate into an important and meaningful experience for the consumer?

We have been developing products for dentists for over a century. We know what good oral health is and how to create products for it. We should be able to transfer and/or reimagine our successful products for the benefit of the consumer. What would a system look like that could achieve this?

I started with the accessories. These are the products that we had already developed and manufactured that could be adapted for personal use with slight reformulations. Then, the brush. It had to be clinically superior and technologically leading, coupling the user’s traditional brushing experience with the professional one.

We wanted to bridge that gap, bringing clinically proven, innovative, and professionally inspired products to help consumers elevate their oral care at home—in between their visits to the dentist’s office. Daily. Dentistry. Delivered.
