Tend dental startup opens 1st practice in DC

New York City-based Tend opened a Washington, D.C., location Aug. 9, the startup's first location outside of New York City.

The technology- and hospitality-driven dental company plans to open five more studios in the area beginning this month. The company has plans to open 20 total locations this year, with additional openings in Boston and Atlanta.

Since its launch in 2019, the company has opened seven locations across New York City, serving more than 50,000 patients and employing 311 team members.

"We launched Tend because we saw an opportunity to bring dentistry into 2021," said Doug Hudson, founding CEO of Tend. "We're beyond excited to introduce Tend to Washingtonians, who have expressed enthusiasm beyond our expectations with almost 2,000 appointments booked within our opening month alone."

The expansion comes on the heels of a $125 million series C funding, an investment that fueled its plans to scale quickly across the nation.

Tend aims to set a new standard for oral health by providing dentistry in a calm, inviting and thoughtfully designed space. In 2020, the company launched a suite of dentist-designed consumer products.
