Oral Health Venture Capital Fund Announces New Partnerships

Revere Partners will support the Seattle Study Club and Workman School of Dental Medicine at High Point University.

Oral health venture capital fund Revere Partners announced 2 new partnerships with the Seattle Study Club and the Workman School of Dental Medicine at High Point University. The agreements will focus on established dentists looking to enhance their knowledge and methods, as well as the next generation of oral health professionals, according to a press release from Revere Partners.

Seattle Study Club is an international network of dental practitioners committed to furthering their knowledge and advancing their methods of care. It has more than 250 study clubs worldwide, with each one focused on helping members improve their practices, connect with the dental community, and incorporate the newest, proven techniques and tools into dentistry. Revere Partners has agreed to bolster the clubs’ regular interactive meetings by introducing at least 1 dental startup per quarter, providing startups and dental technology providers exclusive access to the growth-oriented network, according to the company’s statement

The Workman School of Dental Medicine is the first private dental school in North Carolina, with plans to welcome its first cohort in August 2024. Its unique teaching model will place students in real practices for clinical experience while aiming to open up more opportunities within dentistry via affordable tuition. Workman students are expected to be the first students to receive a broad, dentistry-business education in a pre-doctoral program. Revere Partners’ partnership will infuse the latest technology into the CARE education and practice model, as well as launch a special entrepreneurship and venture capital externship for students, the press release read.

“This partnership will have a direct impact on the next generation of dental professionals,” said Dr. Scott De Rossi, founding dean at the Workman School. “Revere Partners will help provide our students access to the latest oral-health technologies while presenting opportunities for real-world relationships that can establish the foundation for successful careers in the field.”
