Apteryx Imaging has partnered with the German company to develop AI software for dentistry.

Apteryx Imaging, Inc., a subsidiary of Planet DDS, has recently entered into an agreement with German-based Trestle GmBH to co-develop a set of software modules using artificial intelligence (AI) and Deep Machine Learning (DML), designed to address common diagnostic use cases in the dental imaging space, the company announced. The application is suited for device manufacturers and operators, radiologists and other imaging specialists, medical and dental care professionals, laboratories, and patients.

The initiative will be conducted with financial contributions from the Canadian National Research Council’s Industrial Research Assistance Program and Germany’s ZIM innovation program for small and medium-sized enterprises and is currently scheduled to conclude on May 21, 2021.

“Apteryx is excited to contribute our dental domain management expertise, custom software development team, support, sales, and marketing services along with de-identified image data to this project,” said Dr David Gane, CEO of Apteryx. “The resources we provide complement Trestle’s AI, data science, and project management expertise talents in the development of our go-forward AI software strategy.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Apteryx and Planet DDS on a journey that promises to revolutionize dentistry,” said Thomas Gustinis, CEO of Trestle. “With the consolidation of dental practices mirroring health care industry trends, the need for standardization, automation, and improved quality by way of reduced variability and lower costs has never been greater. Through our partnership, we are confident that our joint expertise will bring a suite of tools that will empower dental organizations to realize the future of their industry.”
