Planet DDS, the nation’s leading provider of cloud-based enterprise dental practice management software, announced that Richard Capilla had joined the company as its new Vice President of Strategic Accounts.

Richard Capilla has joined the Planet DDS team as the Vice President of Strategic Accounts to better serve the largest and most strategic clients of the company’s flagship enterprise software, Denticon. 

Capilla has over 30 years of business and technology experience with deep knowledge of the dental industry. Before joining Planet DDS, he served as Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Officer at Dental Care Alliance, one of the largest dental service organizations in the United States.

I am excited to join Planet DDS for two reasons. I believe in the team and the product.  Denticon is the leading software choice for the individual GP dental practice as well as large multi-specialty dental service organizations, and the commitment to continually improve the product is unlike any I have seen in the dental space,” noted Capilla.

As the dental industry continues to consolidate, more and more dental organizations are recognizing the limitations of their legacy desktop practice management software. This trend has led to record growth for Planet DDS, which has made the Inc Magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States three of the past four years.

According to Eric Giesecke, Planet DDS CEO, “the shift to the cloud is accelerating in dental, and we’re in a unique position to expand our footprint with the only comprehensive enterprise cloud solution on the market. Having Richard on board to spearhead key initiatives with our strategic accounts will help us better serve this important segment of our customers. We’re extremely excited to have him join the team.”

Planet DDS’ Denticon cloud-based practice management software is the only proven and time-tested software offering built from the ground up for multi-location groups in the cloud. Denticon has the largest footprint among emerging and established dental groups of any cloud software provider, allowing clients to break free from the constraints of desktop software with a comprehensive solution that includes the tools needed to standardize, centralize, and grow. All while reducing IT cost and enhancing security. Learn more about Denticon at
