The current perception of A.I is one fulled by Hollywood, bringing to mind talking robots and dangerous world-controlling computer intelligence. The reality is far more wide-spread and far less entertaining.
The use of A.I across nearly every sector is on the rise and, in today’s article, we’ll be looking at how it is being used in dentistry and its effect on job roles in the dental field.
At first glance, dentistry seems like an unusual sector to embrace artificial intelligence. However, as with most medical fields, dental practices often have to analyze vast amounts of data and draw conclusions from the results of that data analysis.
This kind of analytical work is an area A.I is an ideal solution for and it has already been trialed in a range of medical fields for just that. For example, Dentistry.ai is an existing set of software that is designed to take a large data set of radiographs and recognize patterns within that data in order to help dentists find carious lesions.
A.I can also be used to streamline dental procedures by allowing the dentist and dental assistants to use voice commands while the patient is in the chair. Adjusting lights, calling up data and having it read out, and even turning certain equipment on and off are all well within the reach of modern A.I powered devices.
For the most part, the use of A.I will simply make dentistry easier and more effective for all involved. The technology has not advanced to the point where it could threaten job losses, but it has the potential to assist in administration and data analytics, freeing up trained staff to take on responsibilities that no amount of software can handle.
Employment for entry-level employment in the dental field is expected to increase 23% over the next 10 years, faster than average for all occupations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. With this growing demand for DAA’s, it is essential that graduates cultivate the skills and traits that will help them stand out in the employment market.
