The program introduces students of the UF College of Dentistry to AI for radiograph interpretation and includes access to Overjet's proprietary AI Teaching Clinic.
The University of Florida College of Dentistry announced its collaboration with Overjet to empower the next generation of dentists with artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance clinical decision-making and patient communication.
The Overjet Dental AI Education Program includes an Introduction to AI lecture series and the Overjet AI Teaching Clinic, a hands-on learning environment that enables dental students to improve their diagnostic and case presentation skills.
Overjet’s FDA-cleared technology detects cavities and quantifies bone level measurements on dental x-rays. It’s AI-powered analysis and annotations create an accurate diagnostic tool and transform traditional grayscale radiographs by adding color, quantification and clarity.
“Our goal is to equip future dentists with the technology and knowledge they need to best serve the community and promote optimal oral health, and this gift from Overjet will help ensure that goal is achieved," A. Isabel Garcia, DDS, M.P.H., the dean of the UF College of Dentistry, says.
"This partnership enables students to have access to AI-powered technology designed to help them diagnose accurately and confidently, enhance their clinical skills, and elevate their ability to effectively communicate their findings to patients," says Teresa Dolan, DDS, M.P.H., the chief dental officer at Overjet, and a professor and dean emeritus of the UF College of Dentistry.
"Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing healthcare, and its application in radiographic interpretation and dental instruction is just beginning," says Anita Gohel, B.D.S., Ph.D., the chair of the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Diagnostic Sciences at the UF College of Dentistry and a past president of the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology. "We are proud to be on the leading edge of dental education and to have access in real-time to new breakthroughs in dental AI through the Overjet teaching clinic and lecture series."
The University of Florida is making AI the centerpiece of an initiative to fuel innovation across the curriculum, and playing a crucial role in the transformation of Florida's economy into a diversified, technology-driven, high-wage economy.
