Planet DDS Invests in Emerging Dental Groups with New Launchpad Program


The industry-first Launchpad Program will help growing dental and orthodontic groups scale by democratizing access to cutting-edge cloud solutions

Planet DDS, a leading provider of cloud-based dental practice management solutions, is announcing the release of its new Launchpad Program, a first of its kind in the dental industry. Designed to support emerging dental and orthodontic groups, this initiative will democratize access to the suite of cloud solutions offered by Planet DDS – Denticon, Cloud 9, Apteryx, and Legwork – for practices looking to scale and grow.

Eligible groups will have access to the best-in-class practice management and imaging solution features at 80% savings, plus education and support from a team of growth experts along with other perks that Planet DDS has carefully curated. Some of the advanced features include AI-powered clinical recommendations to improve patient care, booking features to help fill schedules, automated tools to reduce administrative burdens, and helpful features that reduce outstanding accounts receivable.

“The Launchpad Program represents a strategic investment in the future of dentistry," says Eric Giesecke, CEO of Planet DDS. "By supporting the growth of practices, we're enhancing the health of communities at large and helping to drive the industry forward.”

The Launchpad Program is not just about providing dental and orthodontic practice management tools; it's about achieving a long-term vision for excellence in dental care while increasing access to technology that practices can implement early on to drive expansion and profitability.

As a part of this vision, Planet DDS strives to be the DentalOS™ of the entire dental industry by providing a customizable platform that empowers customers to make the best decisions for their growth – the Launchpad Program is just another example of how Planet DDS is creating more opportunities and pathways for its customers to choose how they serve their patients best.

One of the first customers to join the program is Panhandle Pediatric Dentistry, and with five locations in Panama City, the Launchpad Program is poised to help them grow market share and better serve new and existing patients. Lorany Vazquez, Director of Operations of Panhandle Pediatric Dentistry, shared, “We are excited to join the Launchpad Program. The support and advanced tools from Planet DDS will be instrumental in helping us streamline our operations, enhance patient care, and propel our organization to the next level.”

In addition, Pearl AI has joined the program to provide Launchpad Program members with advanced AI-driven radiologic and case presentation capabilities in Apteryx. “Like Planet DDS, we believe that emerging dental groups committed to growth through clinical excellence should be enabled with the most advanced dental technologies available,” said Ophir Tanz, CEO of Pearl AI. “We’re proud to support this novel initiative to help these practices elevate patient care, recruit leading talent, and grow their value.”

Planet DDS is also inviting other industry leaders to participate in the program, including Thinc Forward and Optimize Dental Consulting. These industry leaders will have the opportunity to contribute educational content and their expertise in IT and technology transformation.

By making cutting-edge software more accessible to practices in early stages of growth, this program will foster a collaborative environment that benefits all participants and elevates the industry. The Launchpad Program is available to eligible dental and orthodontic groups with a minimum of two locations and annual revenue between $3M and $25M. They cannot be backed by private equity firms.
