Overjet, the world-leader in dental AI, has announced a $53.2m Series C round: the largest investment ever in artificial intelligence for dentistry. It brings Overjet’s total funding to approximately $133m and increases the company’s valuation to $550m.

This funding will fuel Overjet’s mission to make dentistry patient-centric—by providing dental professionals with the AI tools they need to operate efficiently and give patients exceptional care. 

Founded in 2018, the North American company Overjet has already raised the standard for diagnosing diseases in X-rays, educating patients about their oral health, and reviewing dental insurance claims. Its platform is the only technology cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to detect, outline, and quantify instances of oral disease, with millimetre-level precision.

“I founded Overjet to elevate the standard of care in dentistry and enhance patient outcomes through AI,” Overjet CEO Wardah Inam said. 

“Overjet’s platform empowers dental organisations by enabling precise clinical decisions, enhancing patient communication, and reducing administrative overhead. This funding will help us further accelerate our mission to improve patient outcomes—by making dental AI ubiquitous.”

The company trains its advanced artificial intelligence on millions of cases, and continually verifies its accuracy with a team of top clinical specialists. Across multiple FDA studies, almost every general dentist was more accurate in detecting cavities and calculus when using Overjet.

With the Series C funding, Overjet will continue to build first-to-market AI capabilities that eliminate friction and uncertainty for patients, at every step. Ultimately, it will establish the first unified standard that connects the entire dental care ecosystem, from providers to payers to dental schools.
