Voice-assistant uses artificial intelligence to complete a full periodontal charting without the need for additional expensive equipment.
Bola AI, a Massachusetts-based company founded by MIT engineers, has developed a voice-assistant that uses artificial intelligence to complete a full periodontal charting without the need for additional expensive equipment. By employing artificial intelligence (AI), the Voice Perio system adapts to the speaker and environment.
Bola AI’s advanced voice technology improves the speed and autonomy of perio exams by helping clinicians easily record results verbally, without assistants. It helps dental practices better protect the health of staff and patients by reducing unnecessary interactions with dental assistants or computer input devices (e.g., keyboards and mice). This technology is designed to help practices increase profitability by improving perio exam productivity, perio treatment acceptance, and patient referrals. Bola AI is also an official partner of Henry Schein ONE.
Many tools are used in AI including mathematical optimization, statistics, probability, linguistics, philosophy and many other areas. Subfields of AI include:
The Voice Perio system is said to increase case acceptance through greater patient engagement and education, and the solution also enables clinicians to track perio scores by educating patients on their oral health, with helpful summary of deep pockets and bleeding on probing. This allows patients to follow their progress and understand goals.
