As a wisdom teeth surgeon, it seems like you can’t go a day without hearing about Artificial Intelligence, or AI. That’s because it’s the wave of the future and will eventually replace old technologies and methods you may be using now. Best of all, it can help you save resources while improving patient care.
For example, as a wisdom teeth surgeon, dentist or other medical professional, you can use AI to:
AI-powered tools can analyze massive amounts of patient data in minutes such as dental history, medical records, bone density, oral health patterns, and more.
In fact, current AI tools can evaluate shades of gray on an x-ray that the human eye can’t see. This data can act as a second opinion and help to reduce errors, create better treatment plans that reduce future complications and even prevent the need for invasive treatments in the future.
You may already have a chatbot system set up to answer patient questions instantly on your website, but did you know that you can also use AI tools to schedule appointments, send out patient reminders, handle billing processes, provide post-treatment care instructions, and other administrative tasks?
This helps your patients quickly get the information they need to feel better about their treatment while freeing up your team members to provide better patient care and focus on key responsibilities.
AI can help you stay current on the latest research findings, trends, studies, and dental literature necessary to provide the best care possible. By entering a few questions or setting up specific requests in advance via various AI tools, you can get the information you need in a matter of seconds, when and where you need it, without wasting time.
As a wisdom teeth surgeon, these are just a few of the many benefits I’ve found that AI technology can provide the dental community right now. You’ll see more services, software programs and tools available to help you provide better patient care as it evolves on a daily basis.
With this in mind, start your AI journey by conducting research and do your due diligence to find legitimate products and services to fit your specific needs. Then, test the processes to see what works best and continue to learn more about AI and how it can help you reach your goals.
Soon, you’ll realize that you have current, valuable data to work with that you’ve never had before. You’ll discover new ways to save time and money while improving your practice. It’s time to embrace AI technology and adopt it as your new partner in providing the best patient dental care possible.
