£5m in funding support allocated to dental technology aimed at preventing tooth decay

Calcivis, an Edinburgh-based dental technology company, has secured £5 million in funding to bring its flagship product to the US market. The product, which uses a biologic diagnostic to detect tooth decay early, was developed by CEO Adam Christie and CTO Bruce Vernon.

The funding round was led by the Scottish National Investment Bank, which provided £4 million of the total amount. An additional £1 million came from IFS Maven Equity Finance managed by Maven Capital Partners. This investment will allow Calcivis to expand its operations into international markets, starting with the US first before moving on to the UK and other European markets.

Paul Callaghan, investment director at the Scottish National Investment Bank, expressed excitement about the company’s potential for revolutionizing preventive oral healthcare on a global scale. He also emphasized how important it is to address cavities and their impact on millions of people worldwide.

Adam Christie highlighted how early diagnosis and treatment can significantly reduce tooth decay and improve overall health outcomes. He is excited about introducing Calcivis’ technology to the US market first and eventually expanding into other regions in Europe. With this new funding, he believes that his company can make a real difference in people’s lives by improving their oral health through innovative solutions like Calcivis’ imaging system.
