There is usually a moment that defines your actions and for Clean Bite™, it was a specific experience of the founder, John Gallagher.
Fifty years ago, as a college student, Gallagher enlisted in the U.S. Army reserve and was trained as an Army medic. After returning to reserve status, he was assigned to an amputee ward at the Walson Army Hospital at Fort Dix, N.J., during the Vietnam War era. While on the ward, his experience with his most severely wounded patient, was so impactful that it planted the seed for his future endeavor with Clean Bite™.
Fast forward to 2018, Gallagher is fully invested in propelling Clean Bite™ forward and potentially changing the lives of individuals all around the world. Clean Bite not only offers a solution but is fueled by the determination of a team who are Members of the Clean Bite, LLC.
Clean by, LLC was registered as a Pennsylvania company in August of 2017 in preparation to assume a universal intellectual property license from its predecessor, Dent-Chew Brush, LLC. The initial universal licensing agreement of 2018 was subsequently concluded in 2020 when the two companies agreed to a stock-for-stock acquisition with Clean Bite, LLC, obtaining Dent-Chew Brush LLC's assets. The purchase was effective between the members of both LLCs in June 2020.
In February 2019, two CB, LLC, Members, John Gallagher and Roman Bielski, together with two nonmembers of Clean Bite, LLC, filed a provisional patent with the USPTO, Ser. No. 62/806,581. In February 2020, a non-provisional patent was filed and is now under examination. Per the European Patent Office, European application No. 20755432.0 will be submitted for patent protection as of August 2021.
The Patent pending (Ser. No. 62/806,581) is named Clean Bite™ II & III, within the Clean Bite™ product line and with variations designed to address the oral hygiene of companion pets and humans with special needs, respectively. The larger of the two markets are for companion pets, in the U.S. and Europe, representing consumer purchases for pets on the order of $100B and €80B.
Clean Bite, LLC Is granted a universal license by the inventors of the patent. Application designated as Ser. No. 62/806,581. The terms of that agreement are proprietary. Clean Bite, LLC intends to establish a foreign subsidiary, likely named Clean Bite, LLP, in Ireland to oversee the independent manufacturing and distribution licensing throughout the EU, concurrent with that of the U.S.
Studies performed at UCI's Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic show LivFresh having 250% greater plaque removal than the leading brand of toothpaste. Additionally, in June 2021, Livfresh was awarded the European Union's CE Mark as the first Over The Counter (OTC) dental gel recommended for treating and preventing gingivitis and periodontitis.
