According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, more than 50% of the U.S. population over the age of 50 agrees that a smile is the one physical feature that stays the most attractive with age. Thanks to dental advancements over the last few decades, people around the world are able to maintain those attractive smiles well into their old age. But more work, more research, and more technological discovery is still needed.
A revolutionizing new dental discovery, Chat-bot technology, could be the next major step in 21st century dental practice.
As the Dental Tribune reports, Awrel, the Boston-based dental software solution provide for web, mobile, and voice platforms, has unveiled its new product, the Awrel Partner Portal, that will enable dental supply companies and laboratories to supply their clients with intelligent, voice-guided ordering services for dental supplies and equipment, including individualized implants.
“We’re very pleased to be the first dental software provider to deliver voice-assisted, hands-free ordering,” said Dr. Arnold Rosen, founder and CEO of Awrel. “With this technology, dental care providers will see improved productivity and quality while suppliers and labs will accelerate their sales processes. This is a definite win-win.”
Voice-powered chat bots can now communicate with dental suppliers and consumers to expedite the ordering and delivery process.
“Dentistry could logically benefit from next-gen voice assistants. This is a logical extension of our offerings,” Rosen added.
Awrel has been busy implementing new innovate ideas within the dental industry over the last few months. Before the chat-bot technology release, a new texting software was created, as well.
Awrel Enterprise, the first-of-its-kind HIPPA-compliant texting software prevents violating any laws while texting through Apple and Android devices.
“When considering the value chain in dentistry, we must factor in the efficiency of more instantaneous communication and collaboration,” said Claudio Levato, DDS, a practicing dentist and thought leader in dental technology integration. As a result, Levato believes patient outcomes can be improved just as much as physician efficiency.
