Weave DentistLehi, Utah-based VoIP communications service for dentists, Weave, has raised $5 million led by A Capital, with participation from Homebrew, Fuel Capital, SV Angel, Initialized Capital, and Y Combinator, according to a report in TechCrunch. Weave has focused on dentist offices in North America as its first target market.

Weave plans to use the funds to build out its product's features, expand marketing, and move beyond dentistry.

The company is also planning to build out its mobile offerings in the near future. The platform currently enables dentists to text patients' mobile phones, but it is not yet designed for use on the dentists' mobile devices. Once Weave goes mobile, its dentist users could choose to accept calls from their smartphones, accept appointment requests right from their device of choice, and review other patient data from them, too.

While Weave's team has been serving dentists since 2008, the company as it exists in its current setup really took shape in 2011. It is currently expanding its customer base by 30 percent each month and now counts 600 dentists as customers. Each pay about $300 a month for Weave, which includes desktop Polycom VoIP phones and Weave software, which the company says integrates with their customers' existing EHRs.
