Perfit receives multiple grants from the National Research Council Canada
Perfit Dental Solutions Inc. (Perfit) has received multiple grants from the National Research Council (NRC).
The grants will enable Perfit to hire multiple employees who will be focused on developing new products, improving existing workflows, testing new materials and developing educational material for patients and practitioners.
“We are extremely privileged to receive funding from the NRC. It has been a long journey to get to this point and we’re excited to know that the government of Canada supports our vision. We believe that our technology will have a dramatic impact on the way that Canadians receive restorative dentistry (from dental implants to dentures). Our products were developed by dental professionals with the primary focus of improving patient health, comfort & convenience. The focus was to develop healthier, stronger, more accurate, more comfortable restorations which also require less chair time and have faster turn-around times. Our first product is focused on denture implants (also known as teeth in a day, all-on-4 dental implants or implant dentures) and is simply a superior product in every major category compared to the current status quo. We’re very excited to continue our growth across Canada” Said Steve Cowburn – Co-Founder of Perfit Dental Solutions Inc.
This announcement comes days after Perfit announced an investment from Atrium Ventures – a local entrepreneur backed venture fund in the Okanagan.
“We believe the timing is right for Perfit. The denture industry is ripe for disruption, the team has tremendous experience and are quickly becoming recognized as key opinion leaders throughout the industry, not only in Canada but throughout the US and Europe as well,” said Jeff Keen, Managing Director at Atrium. “We are very excited about their future.”
Perfit is currently finalizing additional investments into the company which will be released shortly – stay tuned for more exciting announcements.
