The DSO embraced technological innovation and partnered with Overjet for AI-powered radiograph analysis, clinical insights, and operational efficiency.
BOSTON, Jan. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Bright Direction Dental (BDD) announced today it is partnering with Overjet, the industry leader in dental artificial intelligence, to provide AI-powered radiograph analysis and clinical insights to its practices in five states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Missouri.
Overjet is the only dental AI provider that is FDA-cleared for both detecting decay and quantifying bone level measurements on X-rays, which helps dentists diagnose cavities and periodontal (gum) disease. About one in four American adults have untreated dental cavities and almost half have periodontal disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If left untreated, the conditions can lead to pain and tooth loss.
“Our goal is to provide our patients with the highest level of comprehensive care, and Overjet’s AI gives our team another tool to aid them in accurate and consistent diagnosis,” said Ryan Homes, DDS, Director of Dental Affairs at Bright Direction Dental. “We take a data-driven approach to innovation and want our team to have the best technology possible to elevate patient care and improve patient outcomes.”
“At BDD, our mission is to provide deeper relationships, superior support, and brighter smiles,” said Nisheeth Singh, CEO of Bright Direction Dental. “Overjet’s AI helps us accomplish all three goals. We are thrilled for all the benefits this partnership brings to our Doctors, team members, and patients.”
“Overjet and Bright Direction Dental are aligned in our mission to improve oral healthcare through AI technology that provides deep clinical insights,” said Terri Dolan, DDS, Chief Dental Officer at Overjet. “With AI, doctors have a powerful tool to help with both clinical decision-making and patient education. When patients see the AI analysis of their X-rays, they better understand the urgency behind the treatment their doctor is recommending. It builds trust and strengthens the doctor-patient relationship.”
In addition to analyzing and annotating X-rays in real time, Overjet also reviews radiographs from prior visits and integrates with the practice management system to provide additional insights to assist in patient care. To learn more about how AI is transforming dental care, visit Overjet.com.
