If you’ve had a hard time accessing oral health services—or you don’t want to go into a dentist’s office during the pandemic—Kare Mobile could be the answer.
Kare Mobile offers an app you can use to schedule appointments for the services you need. Then a customized van—complete with a dentist chair and other necessary equipment—will visit you, instead of the other way around.
The startup is also licensing its model for dental care delivery as a “white-label” business, so other dental practices can roll out mobile services under their own brand. It has even developed a lightweight radiation resistant jacket called “Safe and Mobile” (S.A.M.) to help protect dental providers who are administering X-rays and don’t want to don a seven-pound lead apron.
Lightship Capital invested an undisclosed amount of capital in the Black-led company.
