We have all dealt with Artificial Intelligence somewhere in our lives, whether we realize it or not. From listening to music, watching movies, online shopping, talk to text, asking Siri or Alexa for something, it is a part of everyday life.

Dentists are using tools to both diagnose and treat dental conditions, and the business team is even using AI to pre-determine dental claims, submit dental claims, and to schedule and confirm appointments. Patients are using AI to self-diagnose symptoms online. This month we look at the current state of AI in dentistry – where it is being used, potential concerns, and advantages.
