Calcivis, an Edinburgh-based dental technology company, has recently secured a £5 million funding round to support its rollout of a product for the early detection of tooth decay. The funding was led by the Scottish National Investment Bank, which provided £4 million, along with an additional £1 million from IFS Maven Equity Finance managed by Maven Capital Partners.

Founded in 2012 by CEO Adam Christie and CTO Bruce Vernon, Calcivis’ imaging system uses a biologic diagnostic to enable preventative treatment before tooth decay becomes irreversible. The company plans to introduce its product first in the US market following premarket approval from the FDA.

Calcivis’ technology is expected to revolutionize preventive oral healthcare, as over two billion people globally suffer from cavities according to the World Health Organization. Adam Christie emphasized the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of tooth decay and highlighted how innovative solutions like Calcivis can make a significant impact on global health.

Paul Callaghan, investment director at the Scottish National Investment Bank, expressed pride in supporting Calcivis’ expansion into international markets, creating job opportunities in Scotland. He also noted that the bank sees Calcivis’ technology as aligned with its innovation mission and anticipates significant health benefits for people in Scotland from the product’s launch in the UK.
