Emerging AI technologies are set to transform dentistry—and this week’s guest is at the vanguard of the seachange.

Ophir Tanz says artificial intelligence won’t replace dentists but will support and free them to focus on patients and clinical time.

His latest project, Pearl, is already providing AI diagnostic support to a profession that carries out more radiography than any other medical discipline.

Ophir explores the potential use cases for AI in dentistry, shares thoughts on the regulatory landscape and gives the lowdown on the challenges of training diagnostic AI in an industry with a surprisingly inconsistent approach to identifying and treating pathologies.
