Emergence client PhotoDynamic is receiving $200,000 to develop a commercialization plan and apply for regulatory approval for its orthodontic oral hygiene product. The company plans to enter the professional orthodontic market this fall. Its product, called PD Foam and PD Tray, removes plaque using a process that combines light and an extract from a plant that grows wild in Nova Scotia.
“PhotoDynamic has had an exciting year,” said CEO Martin Greenwood. “We’ve completed the commercialization of our oral hygiene technology, and under the leadership of our new VP of Marketing, Jason Tutty, we’re ready to test-launch with orthodontists in Canada and the United States.”
