The new capital will further support Kim Dental with expanding the delivery of affordable and reliable oral healthcare services across Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City-headquartered Kim Dental currently operates a fast-growing network of 19 dental clinics across four cities in Vietnam and a dental laboratory that supports its clinic network with in-house production of dental crowns, dentures and bridges.
“Oral health, despite being an important component of primary healthcare, is often neglected and continues to pose a major public health concern in many developing countries,” David Heng, Founder and CEO of ABC World Asia, said. “The improvement of health outcomes is a key impact focus for us.”
According to Heng, Kim Dental is delivering affordable and quality oral healthcare to communities across Vietnam. “With its comprehensive approach towards professionalising dental operations, improving clinical training, and elevating customer service quality, the Vietnamese company is driving positive oral health outcomes anchored on affordability, quality, awareness, and prevention,” he added.
ABC World Asia made the investment via its inaugural $304 million fund, which is backed by Temasek Trust, Temasek, Pavilion Capital, Mapletree Investments, Seatown Holdings, Sembcorp Industries and Singapore Power.
