Dr. Cindy Roark, DMD, MS, Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer at Sage Dental, and Dr. Kyle Stanley, DDS, Chief Clinical Officer at Pearl, discuss the first patient-facing, comprehensive radiologic detection aid for dentistry called Second Opinion ®, created by Pearl and being deployed by Sage Dental. Patients can now get an x-ray at the dentist and have an AI algorithm analyze and annotate their x-ray to denote any dental condition they may have, from cavities to existing dental crowns. It’s one of (if not THE) first patient-facing application of diagnostic AI to be approved by the FDA.
