At the Greater New York Dental Meeting 2023, Dental Products Report had a chat with presenter and founder of Lura Health Daniel Weinstein about remote saliva monitoring. [2 minutes]
Hi, I'm Dan, CEO and cofounder of Laura Health. We are proud to have just presented at the Dental Products Report showcase for new innovations in dentistry. It was a great time to engage with dentists, clinicians, hygienists, and really the community as a whole. It's our second time at Greater New York, and it's really exciting to be here. We're making a brand new way of monitoring health that's more patient-friendly, less invasive, and more clinically acceptable.
So right now the standard of healthcare is usually blood-based testing. We want to make the first wearable sensing platform for continuous data with saliva as opposed to blood. So how do we do that? Well, it's a tiny chip that can be embedded in almost any dental product, removable products like retainers, aligners, or fixed products, like, you know, direct bonded brackets, bands, integrated into dentures, almost any product you can think of. And we think that by sampling saliva continuously, we can provide big value to patients for monitoring their health, and for care providers by preventing disease in their patient populations.
