As ZocDoc Readies To Cross The Pond, Toothpick Quietly Exits Beta And Expands Beyond The UK
Flying somewhat under the tech press radar, Toothpick -- an 'OpenTable for dentists' -- has quietly exited Beta, as well as expanding beyond its native UK to the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. The London-based startup is backed by Passion Capital and various angels, including the founders of AdJug. Interestingly, it comes at a time when U.S.-based ZocDoc, which targets both doctor and dentist appointments, and is backed by the likes of DST and Goldman Sachs, looks to be recruiting a UK General Manager as it readies a launch across the pond.
