Marc Lamarre – Cumulus Dental


As a practicing dentist for 28 years, I decided to return to school and obtain my EMBA degree at age 55. After graduating I started Cumulus Dental. I was always frustrated by the fact that dental charting was a slow process requiring 2 users and usually placed on paper charts which could be lost or misplaced. I was also studying the links between periodontal disease and systemic problems such as coronary artery disease. The current technology to diagnose the problem is a probe with millimeter measurements that has been the gold standard for 120 years. Nothing on the market was measuring the physiology of the disease. Time for innovation!!

I started Cumulus Dental at the age of 57 with Paul Bisson and Victor Varona. After 28 years of practicing dentistry, I wanted to offer better digital diagnostic tools for dentists and hygienists.

We are a pre-revenue company which will soon to launch a revolutionary dental charting system for dentists and hygienists.

Our addressable market in North America is 220,000 dentists, 190,000 hygienists who operate out of 120,000 offices. They collectively perform 355 million dental exams annually.
