Q&M Dental Group (Singapore) is set to unveil an artificial intelligence (AI) “dentist” to resume its growth trajectory which was started by the Covid-19 pandemic but has now stalled. Q&M has set up subsidiary EM2AI to create an AI platform to prevent misdiagnoses and provide a transparent treatment plan for patients.

Dr Ng Chin Siau, CEO and founder of Q&M, says the platform would eliminate the problem of dentists preferring certain procedures and treatments over others because of higher revenue or personal bias. Apart from suggesting a treatment plan favourable to the patient, the AI platform also helps dentists to capture all the data about the condition of a patient’s teeth in a minute or less after an X-ray is taken.

Typically, depending on the condition of the patient’s teeth and limited to what the dentist can see with his naked eye, this diagnostic process takes several minutes and the data has to be manually entered into a chart for filing.
