DM Lab is a new business unit within the teledentistry company that will be tasked with exploring, testing, and validating new solutions for the dental industry. 

DentalMonitoring has set up a new business unit, the DM Lab, which will explore, test, and validate business opportunities across the broad dental market. This move comes as the teledentistry platform company reportedly expands its technological leadership as well as its geographical presence in strategic regions, including China and Japan.

The DM Lab will bring together the expertise of more than 400 employees around the world, who are focused on innovation. They will work to allow DentalMonitoring to experiment and build new, impactful solutions transforming the dental industry, according to the company.

As part of this evolution, Raphaël Pascaud has been appointed senior vice president and executive director, spearheading this newly created venture, as well as other critical initiatives.

Before joining DentalMonitoring, Pascaud worked for 9 years with Align Technology, where he held various senior leadership roles, his final role being senior vice president of business development & strategy.

Alexandra Van der Stap was named chief growth officer of the DM Lab. She previously held senior leadership roles in consumer brands such as North Face, and recently as vice president of marketing, strategy & consumer at Align Technology.

Xavier Laniol will also join the DM Lab as global head of commercial operations. Laniol has spent 27 years in both the pharmaceutical and medical devices sectors. This includes 13 years with Johnson & Johnson and most recently a role as vice president of southern Europe with Mölnlycke, the global leader in wound care.
