DentaCarts, as its name suggests, is a one-stop-shop marketplace for dental supplies that offers the widest range of authenticated products via authorized dealers. Moreover, DentaCarts is deeply integrated with dental clinics management software, creating a higher quality marketplace through deep data insights and analytics. DentaCarts is the largest of its kind not only in Egypt but also in the Middle East. Having been part of Misk500‘s first cohort (in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), DentaCarts was co-founded in late 2017 by Ahmed Yahia and Saad Saleh. The duo has successfully raised an investment of $450,000 from 500 Startups (US), AAIC (Japan), Wadi Makkah (Saudi Arabia), and AUC Angels (Egypt). This unique marketplace is dealing with three main issues, the fake products, limited access to the market then limited choices, and over-inflated prices. The market for dental goods in MENA is a large one, its 3.5 Billion USD and rising with more and more dental services being offered and created for patients (e.g. veneers and more aesthetic services). DentaCarts, so far, has served over 1500 dental clinics and delivered over 10,000 orders in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Kenya, and Ghana. DentaCarts consists of a variety of more than 10,000 items on its platform, from monthly supplies to clinic furnishing, and it has over 100 authorized dealers onboard. DentaCarts has generated 500,000 USD in revenues in 2019.
