‍Considering chair-side AI? Here’s why a concurrent read is critical

Achieving faster, more accurate results with no additional effort on the dentist’s part.

As more dental artificial intelligence (AI) solutions hit the market, even the most informed and best-prepared Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) and dental practitioners can be confused by all the noise. You know that AI solutions for dentistry enhance and automate repetitive or burdensome tasks, allowing you and your team to return your focus to providing the highest standard of care, but what characteristics matter most? How can you invest smartly and realize gains as quickly as possible? 

To start with, in order to take full advantage of your new AI tools, it’s crucial to choose a solution that fits seamlessly into your team's workflow. After all, every minute counts when you have a patient in your chair. You need a system that is as easy to use as it is accurate. Systems requiring you to change processes can add unnecessary complexity without adding value. Additionally, having a strong implementation strategy, proper training and dedicated support to ensure a successful deployment should be table stakes (but, too often, aren’t!).

Concurrent VS secondary read

Videa Assist has proven in rigorous clinical studies that it increases disease detection by 31% and reduces the number of missed cavities by 43% without increasing false positives. (Learn more about the ethics and accuracy of our AI) A joint study with VideaHealth partner Heartland Dental revealed similar findings. These stats are at the top of the market; there is no disputing the accuracy of Videa Assist. But, here is where things get interesting. 

Designed to eliminate unnecessary complexity, our solution seamlessly integrates with leading dental practice management systems. And because our AI solutions are FDA-cleared for concurrent X-ray analysis, we speed diagnostic analysis and charting without drawing out workflows. There are no extra steps involved with a true concurrent read. With Videa Assist, dentists can make treatment decisions while the patient is sitting in the chair, on the spot, as they review X-rays. This means faster, more accurate results with no additional effort on the dentist’s part. There are no delays, no process changes, and no increase in patient wait times. The image below shows the simplicity of the concurrent versus secondary read protocols.

As one can imagine, a true concurrent read is so easy to integrate into existing processes and procedures that dentists adopt the platform uniformly and begin experiencing gains with accelerated treatment planning and charting. And for DSOs, when our technology is implemented at scale across multiple practice locations, gains become exponential. This is especially when also factoring in our average 26% increase in case acceptance rates.
