Centralia, WA – July 20, 2020 – DSN Software and Cytek are announcing the private transfer of 100% ownership of DSN to Tulsa-based Cytek, LLC.
DSN will continue to engineer and market its proprietary practice management software aimed at the dental and dental specialty markets, but it is now part of a stable of tech companies. Included are Cytek (cytek.com), a leading provider of cybersecurity tools across all business categories, and Tech Evolutions (TechEvolutions.com), a network administration and cloud computing specialist. All three companies have a strong presence in the dental market and are poised to help clients benefit from their combined capabilities.
“DSN has an outstanding product with a loyal user base second to none,” said Cytek President Sam Munakl, who now assumes the role of president of DSN from Charles Black. “Charley and I both agree that expertise in cybersecurity and the cloud are precisely what clients need right now, particularly among today’s complex multi-specialty Dental Service Organizations.”
The relationship between DSN and Cytek began in 2017 when Cytek was tasked with encrypting e-mail capabilities offered by DSN to bring them up to full HIPAA compliance. The success of that feature led to the success of the partnership, as well as an understanding that both companies share a vision for the practice management software market estimated to reach $3.8 billion worldwide by 2027.
“I’m personally thrilled to see Sam and his partners take the helm at this juncture,” said Charles Black, who had been president of DSN since 1989. “Clients can expect to see next-level everything, like an ingenious new workflow automation feature available this year.”
DSN will continue to operate out of its office in Lewis County, Washington, where all staff will continue to work. For the immediate future, Mr. Black will also be available to clients who wish to reach out.
