Planet DDS, the company behind industry-leading dental practice management software Denticon, was recently distinguished for the second year in a row on the Orange County Business Journal’s list of fastest growing private companies in Orange County, California. The list recognizes privately held companies in the region for exceptional growth.
Founded in 2004, Planet DDS’s Denticon software was the first enterprise-capable practice management system built from the ground up for the cloud. Planet DDS also offers outsourced business services to dental practices across the country.
Rahul Khot, Principal Software Architect at Planet DDS, attributed another year of high growth at the company in part to its sprint software development cycle, which allows for continuous enhancements to Denticon at shorter intervals between updates. As Khot explained, “the sprint software development cycle is more predictable, more consistent, and more adaptable to dental industry trends than the annual or even quarterly release schedules available to practices and groups that use legacy desktop software.”
Planet DDS’ adoption of the agile methodology allows for more frequent updates because the software development cycle is broken down into incremental, iterative blocks. With traditional desktop software, updates are deployed less frequently, and can be outdated by the time they reach the end of their 6-12 month development cycle.
“We’ve released more updates to Denticon in the last 12 months alone than in the preceding three years combined,” said Khot. “It’s a testament to the power of the agile methodology, which is only feasible in a cloud environment where we can update the software seamlessly without requiring any action on the part of our users. All they need to do is log in online to experience the latest and greatest in practice management software.”
Planet DDS is the established leader in cloud-based dental software. The company’s Denticon practice management software is a powerful, flexible tool built for enterprise and trusted by thousands of dental professionals across the country.
