Identifying A Higher Needs Patient Can Be Time Consuming  

Using AssistDent saves Dentists precious time.  It enables you and your clinical team to identify a high needs patient – typically in eight to ten seconds you have an AI analysed auditable radiograph ready for diagnosis.  Making more time available to assess more deeply and accurately the patients’ oral health.   

Using AssistDent in your practice will enable your clinical team to more quickly and accurately assess patients’ oral health.  Peer-reviewed research[1] shows that dentists miss around 30-40% of early enamel decay and proves that AssistDent enables Dental Clinicians to identify more early enamel proximal caries.  Diagnosing previously unidentified disease is a significant factor, which means that you can offer an improved oral health patient pathway which is demonstrable, reliable and ethical.  For more details: CLICK HERE

The Process Of Bringing A New Patient Onto Your Practice List

Two bitewing radiographs are taken for each patient.  You then analyse and study each radiograph to detect visible abnormalities.  Dentists are in agreement, that the most difficult abnormality to detect in a radiograph are early enamel inter-proximal lesions; the 30-40% identified in recent research.  For a full day of new patient appointments, this means you must analyse, study and diagnose around 20 radiographs – accurately and consistently – with no room for error, as this determines the patient’s payment band.

The Process when using AssistDent – Empowering your Patient to take Responsibility

Viewing the patient radiograph using AssistDent, you receive a fast and accurate analysis of early enamel inter-proximal caries detected within average time of eight to ten seconds. 

Clinical studies have proven that, using AssistDent, clinicians find more early enamel inter-proximal caries.  If a radiograph shows regions of interest that it has detected with E1/E2 carious lesions, then you will have rapidly and confidently identified a high needs patient. 

These are the lesions that can come and go, the ones that you can remedy: Meaning true preventive dentistry once you have the AI tools and the time to talk to patients about their responsibility for their own oral health. 

Identifying these previously hard to diagnose caries, can now have a significant positive impact on the treatments you offer. 

Providing a patient with additional oral health hygiene services and remineralisation products can improve both the longevity of your clinical work while increasing patient satisfaction and their loyalty.

The BIG Benefits to Dentists

Demonstrate to your patients that prevention works.  You can show, visually and objectively, the decay lesions that will become cavities.  Over their patient journey, you can gain professional satisfaction in showing patients how you have helped prevent and/or reversed their tooth decay.  Diagnosing more early enamel decay will improve the service you give your patients; the simple, demonstrable value in following a preventive journey. 

Evidencing an improved capability to diagnose oral health conditions, it will help you to build a strong and trusted dentist-patient relationship.  Visual tools help support patient education, leading to higher uptake rates of recommended preventive and regenerative courses of treatment. 

When offering high value treatment, you can include private hygiene services at the beginning and end of the course whilst focusing on their ongoing oral health maintenance, as the centre of your relationship with the patient – with clear reason for doing so.  This increases treatment uptake, helps to ethically grow your practice income and reduces your risk from medico-legal claims. 

Meeting UDA targets is simplified as AssistDent helps ensure you are treating those patients who are in genuine need and those who will take responsibility for their oral health.  This foundational factor, creates confidence to offer the restorative work you would have undertaken, yet with greater efficiency and a higher likelihood of success for the patient.  As a part of your practice mix, and with preventive dentistry at the forefront, your hygiene department will increase workflow – and practice profit – significantly.

The BIG Benefits for Patients

The Patient’s trust is paramount.  Being able to see how AI assisted diagnosis identifies more previously undiagnosed oral health pathologies, a patient will feel more confident about visiting you, their dentist. 

Consequently and crucially, they acknowledge their own responsibility to follow recommended treatment plans.  AssistDent will empower your patient to understand why it is important to have great oral health and the service they have received from you, is likely to be more successful and long-lasting. 

Patients will become responsible for their own preventive dental health journey when guided by you, the clinician who has more time for better communication.  

The Overall Benefits

Timesaving Efficacy

Saving time in surgery – with a radiograph analysis taking around eight seconds – will have a substantial cumulative beneficial effect, enabling more patients to be seen. 

Hugely beneficial for the dentist, this efficiency is particularly important for the practice, increasing capacity and leading to growth in turnover and greater profitability.  Time to balance meeting your UDA’s with private practice patients, all focused on a preventive journey for your patients which is profitable for you and for your practice.

Ethically Increased Patient Spend

Do you know of a patient who wants to spend money on something that could have been prevented?  Would you? 

The option of spending more now for longer term gain is a logical decision that most willingly commit to. 

AssistDent enables Dental Clinicians to show patients the benefits of a preventive approach to their oral health.  Evidencing the benefit of a preventive approach to dentistry (for both NHS and private patients, plus those that are a blend of the two) Clinicians using AssistDent AI can demonstrate the effects of a patient’s journey towards better oral health. 

Long term cost savings for the patient are a desirable reality, especially when there’s a requirement for a lifespan of potentially expensive cosmetic treatments. 

Meanwhile, Clinicians are empowered to increase their patients’ spend in the full knowledge that they are acting in the best interests of the patient.  All of this is backed up by auditable evidence.  Peace of mind for you, the dentist and for your patient.
