SmileSnap has until now managed to raise over $50 million in capital from various investors like NEA and Intel Capital.

SmileSnap, an innovative virtual appointment and consultation SaaS platform for orthodontists & dentists, has recently revealed that it has secured a seed fund from its latest financing round that saw the presence of multiple renowned investors coming from both orthodontic and dental sectors.

Patients prefer convenience and practices that are open to the use virtual practice software.  This would give a direct competitive edge over those that are still using conventional methods.

As for the funding, it would enable SmileSnap to further develop its product portfolio and expand its overall market share amidst this rapidly advancing dentistry sector. SmileSnap has experienced incredibly rapid growth this year and is on a trajectory to gross new heights in 2021, added Pellegom.
