The DDS Lab Board of Directors is pleased to introduce William (Bill) Braun as the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Braun’s proven record of business leadership, regulatory compliance/quality assurance, and revenue growth made him the ideal choice for establishing DDS Lab as the premier dental laboratory in the United States.
“In the past few months, DDS Lab has doubled its production laboratory to 65,000 square feet and now employs more than 800 highly skilled technicians to serve the needs of dentists and dental service organizations across the country,” says Braun. “I look forward to continue the company’s impressive growth and the development of new products, processes and services. I want to ensure DDS Lab provides the highest level of product quality and customer service available in our industry to all of the doctors, technicians and patients with whom we support.”
Braun comes to DDS Lab from Steris PLC, where he served in multiple leadership roles including President of the Outsourcing Solutions Division; President of the Reusable Surgical Solutions Division; and Senior Vice President of Operations, Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance. He had oversight responsibility for a $72 million line of business and 575 employees at ten facilities.
“Mr. Braun’s extensive experience in healthcare technology, global operations, supply chain management, and quality assurance will expand DDS Lab’s reputation as a leader in the U.S. dental lab market,” said Hanxi ZHAO, Managing Director of CITIC Capital and a member of the Board of Directors.
DDS Lab offers more than 400 dental products including crown and bridge cases, complete and partial dentures, implant restorations, attachments, orthodontic appliances, and mouthguards. Its enhanced quality assurance process, dedicated customer service experts, and short turnaround times have made DDS Lab the first choice for dentists nationwide.
