Neeraj worked as the CEO and President of Byte, an invisible teeth aligner brand, from July 2019 to August 2022. In 2021, Byte was bought by Charlotte, N.C.-based dental products giant Dentsply Sirona Inc. in an all-cash deal valued at $1.04 billion. However, Neeraj never owned the company. He just worked there for over 3 years.
As a direct-to-consumer orthodontics business, Byte was started in 2017 by serial entrepreneurs Scott Cohen and Blake Johnson. It began operations in January 2019 and expanded swiftly. Since Byte’s procedure doesn’t generally require office visits, the coronavirus pandemic gave the business a significant boost. For 2020, it anticipated revenue of roughly $200 million.
Meanwhile, Neeraj was the CEO and President of the company before and after the company was sold. He parted ways with the company in August 2022 and has yet to announce his upcoming adventure. It seems he is currently busy buying his own property or working to start up his own. Thus, Neeraj is not a billionaire. While we’re sure his net worth is in the millions, he has to go a long way to become a billionaire.
According to his LinkedIn profile, he graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1998. Before joining Byte, he previously worked for True Car, Inc. for over 7 years.
In Selling Sunset, Chelsea tells that Neeraj had just bought a home in Santa Monica and was trying to purchase another as a rental property. Visit Netflix to know if bought the property.

Dad, first and foremost, who’s just trying to enjoy every day and teach my boys to care for the world.

On Instagram, Stause announced the news and stated that filming would start that summer. Since then, several cast members—including Heather Rae El Moussa and Nicole Young—have posted updates from the set.
Seasons 2 and 3, as well as seasons 4 and 5, were filmed concurrently and released on Netflix with shorter in-between delays (May to August for 2 and 3, and December to April for 4 and 5). As a result, the two-season filming schedule has somewhat established a tradition for the show. We predict that new episodes will be released by late fall 2023 based on the show’s past release timetables and the teaser that ended the season 6 finale.
