Every dental professional (dentists, nurses, hygienists etc) registered with the UK General Dental Council must complete qualifying Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and maintain a Personal Development Plan (PDP). Dentinal Tubules has developed an intelligent online PDP which helps users identify their goals and plan their CPD on www.dentinaltubules.com.

We are raising £250K under EIS to bring tech in-house. In 2017 we raised £517K from private investors at 12p per share to fund a new website, increase the library of video content and hire a team of people. Until then, Dhru had run the business as a solopreneur. In 2018 a further £36K was raised at 14p a share, the same as the offer to Crowdcube investors.
During 2018, Dhru travelled over 4,000 miles across the UK educating dentists about the new CPD rules and demonstrated the Dentinal Tubules intelligent PDP. His book, The Intelligent PDP: 8 steps to developing the successful, intelligent PDP is available on Amazon.
Revenue grew from £179K in the year to Mar-16 to £448K in Mar-18. EBITDA declined from £118K to £(88K) due to investment in the team and new products.
