Stout announced that PlusDental, a German-based telemedicine start-up focused on dentistry, has successfully completed its EUR 32 million funding round led by Hong Kong based Ping An Global Voyager Fund (“Ping An”). Existing investors HV Holtzbrinck Ventures and Lakestar also participated in the round, as well as Christian Wegner, founder of the Berlin-based “re-commerce” platform Momox. Stout acted as the exclusive financial advisor to PlusDental in this transaction.

PlusDental is a Berlin-based, leading health-tech company specializing in the digitalization of dental treatments. The company has developed a digital platform for aesthetic orthodontic corrections and has already treated many thousands of patients together with its strong network of more than 70 local partner dentists. PlusDental offers its digital dentistry platform for patient acquisition and treatment monitoring, as well as training and laboratory products to registered partner dentists in five European countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Great Britain, and Spain. The company manufactures its products in its own laboratory in Germany, to the highest medical and ethical standards. PlusDental is a leading brand for high-quality, affordable aesthetic dental corrections with a mission to provide the general public with broad access to innovative dental services.
