ImpactAlpha, October 19 – Poor, senior and rural Americans lack adequate access to affordable oral healthcare. Government programs like Medicare and Medicaid often do not cover dental care for adults. 

Louisville, Ky.-based Kare Mobile, a mobile dentistry provider, serves under-represented communities with an app-based scheduling system, and back-end support for dentists that want to build affordable, physically mobile practices (think dental vans.) 

Lightship Capital invested an undisclosed amount of capital in the Black-led company.
