We have been working hard on our research efforts to bring computer vision to every dental practice.

And so far our outcome has been great, so we decided to step it up a notch. After the last release candidate (RC) we had a small data set to build out first serviceable prediction model for dental X-rays. On our latest model we had more than 600 images and 4500 data-points. We want to show you our outcome on the latest update.

Our first Dx Vision RC [Release Candidate].

After we applied our new data set and tens of thousands of steps the results look like below.

Two predictions with different step count. The precision increases overtime.

What we can clearly see is that that the new algorithm trained with a richer data set can detect more object with a good precision. We will go further with thousands of images and tens of thousands of data points for our first version of the algorithm.

Another example below.

Dx Vision RC2. Step 10K — Step 40K

This is the status of Dx Vision R&D project so far. We will release this new trained model to all our users in the coming days as a service and we will open a new platform for all the dentists and dental students to play with in the near future.

Stay tuned for Dx Vision 2.0 specifications and all that is new to come.
Hint: We will include object masks in the new release :)

Until then we wish you all the best, Alen Saqe — Team Dentem.

‘D Assistant’ — Virtual Assistant with a human interface

Tags: virtual-assistant artificial-intelligence machine-learning innovation nlp

So far we have achieved a successful journey of communicating with our devices via keyboards or lately touch input. But as time passes and technology advances the ‘big players’ are investing more into giving machines a human interface. And that is a voice enabled communication. While it is nothing new lately it implementation is accelerating at new speeds. And the machines are becoming ‘smarter’. You can now talk to smartphone, TVs and so much more electronics.

While we as a team reflected as what the future will bring in dentistry we joined the bigger players into our quest of not only enabling our users to ‘type’ or ‘tap’ into our platform. But rather talk to it. Hence achieved a hands free communication with Dentem that will serve a lot of busy dental practitioner and assistants with voice commands.

We would love to introduce you to our latest innovative project that is code named ‘D Assistant’.

While this is just a simple first step, for all the techies out there, it features Natural Language Processioning, Hot Word Detection, Speech Recognition and Speech Synthesis.

While ultimately we will bring a more human interface throughout our platform, ‘D Assistant’ will be integrated with third party assistants starting with Google Assistant. To extend the reach of our platform into more mainstream devices like Google Home mini/maxi and more smart screen that are taking on the market right now.

But as always this is only the beginning, our assistant will not only hear your commands and reply back to you but we will make it real smart, like ‘AI’ smart. As it will analyse more data points within your data set and give you suggestions or will remind you to add that visit

For more innovations stay tuned!
Alen @ Team Dentem.

The tools for the doctors have changed a lot and at a very fast pace leading to better and less painful treatments for all of us. From the toolkit for simple procedures to the dental chairs where we now comfortably sit while we get a shiny new smile!

While their digital platforms are hitting a wall at innovation! Moving to the cloud is not a revolution it’s just an evolution! Dentem is here to breathe new life into a digital platform of the future.

  1. Storing health records, x-rays and data on the cloud.
  2. Scheduling appointments and sending automated messages to the patients
  3. Issuing voice commands to the virtual assistant. (beta)
  4. Automating and making customer relations feels more natural thru natural language processing.
  5. Assisting dentists on their precise methodologies with the power of augmented reality. (A new project with AR tech will be available in 2018)
  6. Last but not least bringing the power of algorithms to help the doctor make better decisions which in fact will improve your treatments.

Dentem is a growing platform that is giving dental practices all the necessary tools to handle and grow their business. A very important part of the journey have been the dentists and practices that are using Dentem and giving valuable feedback.

Soon all dental clinics that use Dentem to manage their daily workflow will have access to a very powerful tool. ‘Dx Vision’ the computer vision for all the panoramic x Rays.

All our everyday efforts have improved the accuracy and added more labels to the model. Now Dx Vision can detect up to 10 different objects within an image. Starting with fillings, implants and going to bridge and root canals.

Every new release is getting better and soon enough we will differentiate more objects and different problems within images.

Good news ‘Dx Vision’ will be available to all doctors around the world with an invite system. And everyone will be able to test it out, work with the tool set and contribute to system. With valuable input that will be used to retrain the model for a higher accuracy.

Stay tuned for more. This is one of our projects that will change how dentists work. More project coming on our vision for 2020. Dentem 2020 will allow doctors to use the platform hands free and help them achieve more by doing less.

This is a great day for us as a team and as a young company. We are officially part of this great movement that promotes and celebrates giving back. Joining Atlassian, Salesforce and thousands of other companies.

Dentem is proud to join Pledge 1%, a global movement creating new normal where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values. Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to causes of their choice. Dentem is excited to join Pledge 1%’s network of founders, entrepreneurs and companies around the globe that have committed to giving back.

Giving back our time and technical help to lots of young people. Theodhor, Zhaklina, Rexhin, Klevis and many more on coding 101. Product Tank, ABG, D Academy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger once said in a speech in front of university students “Call me anything, but never call me a self made man!” and he was right about one thing. None of us individually or as companies are self made. We work hard but together with the help of the people that support us we grow and get better.

‘Dx Vision’ the future of image recognition now on every dental practice.

Published on Wed, 20 Sep 2017 11:26:06 GMT

Tags: artificial-intelligence machine-learning digital-x-ray dentistry dental

Today we are announcing one of our biggest research and development project here at Dentem. It’s code-named ‘Dx Vision’ and what it essentially does is that it analyze X-rays to determine all the object [implants, fillings, etc.] in it.

This is a three stage project that we are building. The first stage is to leverage artificial intelligence and build an algorithm to detect this objects. We have tested some scenarios for the first stage and the accuracy of detection was over 99% in the cases that we tested.

After we successfully completed stage one we entered stage two of development. We built a model and we are training the model to label multiple objects within the same X-ray. We are training the algorithm with a small data set and then we will go on production with the help of tens of dental practitioner to better determine everything that an image may contain.

The training phase is in the early days but we are eager to show you what it might look like.

Early preview. Low accuracy. Training the first version of the algorithm.

This is what it might look like in production:

Dx Vision [Mobile Preview].

After we finish the second stage we will enable the algorithm to a few early access users and we will train it further to open up the way for the third stage in which we will involve all the feedback from all the dental practitioners to enable the training of the algorithm even further.

It will essentially tag an X-ray just like you tag your friends on a Facebook picture. Implementing modern techniques of machine learning we believe that this tool will forever change the way dental practices use and analyze X-rays.

Stay tuned for more projects/updates that we will showcase in the near future.

Until then we wish you all the best and a bright smile.

We are working daily to improve the quality of the service we offer to our clients. One of our main goals is to create a scalable and stable infrastructure.

So we relied on cloud providers in order to achieve our goals. Recently we are moving all our infrastructure to Google Cloud Platform [GCP] and on the new updates you will see a speed increase from 10x to 20x faster.

This will simplify the life of every user and client. From finding a clinic to booking an appointment and looking up electronic dental records from the doctors point of view. All the calls are now up to 100 ms in latency and all users will spend a split second to achieve what they need. So in essence a users will save up to 2 seconds on every operation on the web app or mobile apps. You can see the results according to the network test from chrome on the same machine on the same network.

While our mission is to simplify the daily workflow for dentists we believe that every second counts.

Stay tuned for more updates!
