September 10, 2020

Planet DDS, the nation’s leading provider of cloud-based enterprise dental practice management software Denticon, announced that Chae Kim had been promoted to Senior Vice President – Product. Chae Kim, former Vice President - Technology at Planet DDS, was promoted to Senior Vice President - Product. He is being promoted into a newly created position that is responsible for improving all of Planet DDS’ and Apteryx Imaging Inc.’s various products.

Kim has over 25 years in designing and developing dental software and has been with Planet DDS since 2004. Before joining Planet DDS, Chae co-founded Computer Age Dentist, a nationally recognized practice management software company that subsequently merged with Medical Dynamics.

As the dental industry continues to consolidate, more and more dental organizations recognize the limitations of their legacy desktop practice management software. This trend has led to record growth for Planet DDS, which has made 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, “We are incredibly grateful to have someone of Chae’s caliber on the leadership team. Chae has a exceptional skill set that makes him a perfect for this new role -- a strong technical acumen, deep product knowledge, and an understanding of how to iteratively improve products through a data-driven and customer-centric approach. This natural progression will allow Chae to focus on the area where he is uniquely positioned to make the most critical impact for Planet DDS.”
