UDENZ, a digital dental healthcare platform based in Dubai, has raised $5 million in its Series A funding round. The round was backed by Hakim Capital Holding, Techcelerate Investments LLC, Inspira Management, and Dubai Business Corporation.
The platform currently provides a one-stop solution for dentists in the MENA region, with 26 services integrated into one platform. UDENZ has handled over 100,000 search requests for a dentist and confirmed more than 5,000 bookings, with close to 8,000 dentists on its database.
The Dental Ultra Platform Services, which will be offered to dentists free of charge, marks a new era in dental clinic management and patient data applications.The service is supported by a freemium business model, making it more accessible and effective for both practitioners and patients. With the global dental market projected to reach $610 billion in 2023, according to Grand View Research, the funding round presents a significant opportunity for UDENZ to streamline both practitioner operations and patient experiences while also enhancing dental management and cash flow positivity.

It's a validation of our efforts and a catalyst for our future growth."
UDENZ's successful fundraising efforts, including $450,000 raised through crowdfunding and additional rounds, have set a pre-money valuation at $2 million. The Series A funding round marks a new height in UDENZ's growth trajectory, as the company continues to change the dental healthcare landscape in the MENA region.
