In this episode of "The DrBicuspid.com Podcast," which was recorded live at the recent Chicago 2024 Midwinter Meeting, I interviewed Brant Herman, the founder and CEO of MouthWatch and Dentistry.One.

During our wide-ranging talk, we discussed the background of MouthWatch and its focus on internal cameras for patient education and case acceptance. We also explored the evolution of teledentistry and its adoption in innovative programs and rural areas.

The conversation highlights the benefits of teledentistry in improving access to care and coordinating patient appointments. We also discussed the integration of dental and medical systems and the importance of oral systemic health links. The role of artificial intelligence (AI) in teledentistry is explored, with a focus on its potential for photographic assessments and treatment recommendations.

Takeaways

  • Teledentistry is being adopted in innovative programs and rural areas to improve access to care and coordinate patient appointments.
  • Integration of dental and medical systems is important for addressing oral systemic health links and improving patient outcomes.
