BioDental Sciences Inc., a New York-based technology company that connects dentists, DSOs, and dental laboratories to improve financial, operational, and clinical outcomes, has announced the appointment of Mark Thorne as President and Chief Operating Officer effective immediately.
Biodental Sciences will also begin operating under a new name and will be known as Cayster Inc.
In the role of President and COO, Thorne will be responsible for overseeing all business operations for the company, including finance, strategic planning, commercial infrastructure, human resources, and all customer-facing departments such as sales and customer service and support. Thorne has a long-standing track record as a successful executive, key influencer and leader, both globally and domestically, with a core strength in developing and implementing operational and financial infrastructure and systems to grow and scale businesses.
The Biodental rebranding strategy reflects both the evolution of the company and its commercial offering, also called Cayster, as an open platform and marketplace that connects, improves, and optimizes interactions between dentists, DSOs, dental labs and other relevant parties in marketplace. Along with this name change, the company is adopting a new logo, launching a new website, and releasing a series of new features to its technology platform.
The rebranding also coincides with the company’s efforts to identify and attract new talent across the organization.
Prior to joining Cayster, Thorne served more than two decades as the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer at two wholly-owned subsidiaries of WPP Group, the world’s largest advertising, marketing services and technology holding company.
His responsibilities included global profit and loss, strategic planning and managing and optimizing corporate infrastructure. Thorne brings a hands-on approach and experience in developing and executing corporate business plans, driving commercial and strategic initiatives, directing domestic and global businesses, aligning financial and operational targets, hiring, building teams and scaling commercial offerings.
