Addressing the needs of patients who have dental anxiety and dental professionals alike
Elite Dental Group, a cornerstone partner of healthcare giant Novena Global Lifecare, is first in Singapore to adopt a cutting edge Dental Artificial Intelligence(AI) Technology called "SmileMate", created by Dental Monitoring, a Dental Technology and AI-based company headquartered in Paris, France, addressing the needs of patients who have dental anxiety and dental professionals alike, for the provision of remote and virtual general dental consultation services to such patients.
Only general dental information will be given to the potential patient and the attending dental surgeon could encourage the potential patient to seek a professional consultation at a dental practice, where proper professional dental opinions will be given . No consultation fee will be collected from this remote dental consultation.
Spearheaded by Dr. Gerald Tan, Global Head of Novena Global Lifecare's Dental Division, Elite Dental Group is excited to be a pioneer in this revolutionary and disruptive breakthrough in the dental industry, as many patients have been concerned about the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing containment measures taken by governments worldwide.
Patients who have dental anxiety can finally get a dental consultation done with general dental advice given by a dental professional without leaving the comfort of their own homes. This Dental AI technology has far reaching implications for dental insurance, health screening and making dentistry accessible to more people than ever before.
