Healthcare comparison site WhatClinic.com has announced its strategic acquisition of UK dental booking site Toothpick.com.
WhatClinic.com enables patients to compare and review clinics across the globe, with online booking and independent price checks.
WhatClinic was founded in 2007 by tech entrepreneur Caelen King and is headquartered in Dublin. Since its launch, over 60 million people have visited the site to find, compare and book treatments across a wide range of elective medical treatment.
WhatClinic’s founder Caelen King, founder, WhatClinic, said: “Toothpick has worked incredibly hard to offer a seamless end-to-end booking solution that works effortlessly for dentists. 1.7 million patients use our site every month and we are committed to providing them with the fastest, most comprehensive service when it comes to finding and booking treatment. Our acquisition of Toothpick allows us to significantly improve our offering for all patients who are looking for dental treatment. We look forward to rolling out real-time booking for all routine dental clinics in markets outside the UK over the coming months.”
Toothpick’s founder, Sandeep Senghera, added: “Since 2013 we have worked closely with dentists in the UK to ensure their spare appointment availability (now totalling over 3 million live appointments slots) is automatically published online. This is just the beginning, by joining forces with WhatClinic, we are able to open up our easy to use booking features to patients and clinics all over the world. It’s an exciting step for the Toothpick team.”
