Beam Dental raises $5.5M, teams with VSP to bundle in vision benefits

A Columbus technology company that pairs dental insurance with an internet-connected toothbrush has raised $5.5 million toward expanding into more states, and now is bundling in vision benefits from industry giant VSP Global.

Beam Dental raised the Series B round from past lead investor Drive Capital LLC and St. Louis, Missouri-based Lewis and Clark Venture Capital LLC, both of which focus their investing on the Midwest.
