AngelMD Opens its Healthcare Investment Platform to Dentists

AngelMD is proud to announce that it is expanding its platform to enhance the engagement of its growing dental community. AngelMD is a platform that brings startups, healthcare experts, and investors together to provide better outcomes for patients, startups, and investors alike. Until today, dentists had a less pronounced voice on the network. But the $138 billion oral health market is ripe for innovation, and via AngelMD the nearly 200,000 dentists in the United States can help source, advise, and invest in the most promising dental health innovations.

“With innovations in alignment, 3D-printed implants, and high-resolution imaging–to name a few–the time is right to welcome dental professionals into the AngelMD network,” said Tobin Arthur, AngelMD CEO. “We are already seeing traction with dental-focused startups, so adding the expertise of practicing dentists will help us to find and assist the companies that have real clinical promise.”

The AngelMD network is already home to thousands of physicians who offer their time, expertise, and investment dollars to help drive the future of healthcare. The dental community on AngelMD will play an equally critical role in identifying startups, scoring those companies on their clinical importance, and making syndicate investments with their colleagues.

The AngelMD investment team sees a significant opportunity for early acquisitions of startups in the dental market. The industry as a whole is looking to fuel its growth in this highly-competitive segment, with applications ranging from hospitals to clinics, and home use as well. Based on the best available data, AngelMD expects the dental consumables and equipment markets to see a combined annual growth rate in excess of 15 percent over the next five years.
