Irvine, Calif. - Keating Dental Arts has announced Kim Solomon has been hired as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Prior to joining KDA, Solomon was the Director of Digital Dentistry & Regenerative Solutions at Nobel Biocare for 5 years, where he spearheaded the NobelProcera/NobelClinician product lines and in 2013 successfully launched the first Nobel Biocare branded regenerative solution line “creos,” allograft, and xenograft materials in the North American and Canadian markets.
Solomon has an extensive background in the dental arena, beginning his career as a dental technician at Dental Pro-Lab of Florida.
