Methuen Family Dentistry announced this week that it has partnered with Overjet to add artificial intelligence to its suite of technology designed to elevate patient care.
Overjet’s AI analyzes and annotates X-rays in real time, outlining decay in color and quantifying bone loss to make it easy for both the clinical team and patients to know where to focus their attention.
“My goal is to have patients be completely confident about their recommended treatment,” said Dr. Mark Sivers. “We use intraoral photography, 3D imaging, and now AI to ensure the most accurate diagnosis possible and provide effective treatment solutions.”
Dr. Sivers, who has been the team dentist for the Boston Red Sox, is a pioneer in dental innovations. He was one of the first to use digital impressions and is always looking for ways to improve the patient experience. For more than 15 years, he practiced in a multi-specialty practice and taught at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine before affiliating with Aligned Dental Partners, a dental support organization and consulting company.
“Overjet, Methuen Family Dentistry, and Aligned Dental Partners are united in our goal to improve oral health care by enhancing dentists’ training and experience with the latest technology,” said Wardah Inam, the CEO and co-founder of Overjet. “AI analyzes vast amounts of data to help dentists diagnose and help patients better visualize what is happening in their mouths.”
Overjet also analyzes patient records from previous visits, which makes it easier for dentists to compare changes over time. Plus, insurance companies are more likely to approve claims when the findings are supported by AI analysis.
Forbes magazine named Overjet one of the top 50 AI companies shaping the future. To learn more, visit Overjet.com.
