‘Dx Vision’, the computer vision algorithm that detects problems within dental x-rays, will be soon available for free for every dental professional or student around the world.
The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers in the United States are for 2018: About 51,540 people will get oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer. An estimated 10,030 people will die of these cancers.Mar 9, 2018
‘Dx Vision’ from Dentem is partnering up with Dental Universities and Researchers to help doctors and radiologists find issues faster and eliminate human errors as much as it can providing a second opinion.
The algorithm is being trained all the time and new data-sets are being added to make it better everyday. The solution will be modular and it will serve different purposes. Stay tuned to learn more about ‘Dx Vision’ and check back soon at: https://www.dentem.co/dxvision
The future will be much different that what it is now. We have seen a few revolutions throughout our lifespan. The speed of the Internet has changed the world by introducing real time connectivity. However, there is also a fundamental evolution in the way we input information. How we communicate with our devices. It started by inputting long and complex commands through a keyboard layout styled after typewriters. Then continued through GUI introduction, and then with the famous touchscreen and mobile devices together with the connectivity of the Internet revolutionized the way we use technology daily.
The future looks even brighter. Our voice is becoming more and more a mainstream input and is changing how we use our devices and how we communicate. We also have the evolution of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence layers that are built on top of all the data spread across devices and platforms. We at Dentem are contributing to the future with our research projects.
That is where we see our platform contributing to the change of how dental practices are managed and how software enables doctors and staff to achieve more while increasing effectiveness and efficiency. In 10 years from now, we will communicate with our devices primarily with our voice and in a more natural way. To the extent that technology may understand us fluently. The platform will not only analyze data but also give us second opinions on what procedures should be done and in what order so the treatment for the patient is always on point. The dental chair will not be just a chair with an Internet accessible computer or local database but rather a real virtual assistant to the provider of healthcare. It will be a central hub generating and retrieving new valuable information from a patient and directly analyzing the results from the moment a client needs a treatment. Smart delivery of care, not just a standard 6 month reminder to check up on clients but more customized care based on patients genetic data that determines if a patient either has stronger teeth or teeth that are more prone to a specific problem or periodontal problems like plaque.
To the extent that once the patient sits on the dental chair a full 3D scan is made and procedures needed are automatically suggested. Afterwards, the doctor may wear smart glasses and preview a real-time bone structure of the patients skull and teeth so they know all the details for an extraction. Also, technologies that automatically calculate where braces should be placed and how much pressure should be applied to achieve the best results according to the bone density and age of the patient. All of this may be done without even touching a keyboard or mouse.
The future might look scary for some, but bright and exiting for us here at Dentem. And, we want to help build this future.

Oni @ Team Dentem.
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.
After we applied our new data set and tens of thousands of steps the results look like below.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
At Dentem we are not just improving dentists life but we are affecting the lives of their patients as well for them to feel better while they go to their lovely dentists.

This is a quick update that the release candidate of Dx Vision is seamlessly integrated in Dentem as a service.
While we are adding more data set for the algorithm to become more precise we are already thinking of the specifications of Dx Vision 2.0 that will come built in with crowd sourcing so the more it is used the better it will become using machine learning to be optimized.
Stay tuned while we will release a new project in the field of voice enabled virtual assistants.
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.
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.
Since our early days we thought of giving back to the community a little bit of ‘us’. Our time, our help in product and our support. As of late we have helped hundreds of young developers get into coding and tens of new entrepreneurs think of starting up. But we are not even stopping here. We are helping more and more developers and young boys and girls get into coding to one day become better developers and join great companies in their future. And as well help new startup founders with our network and advice. And to top it all of we are thinking of giving back more with product and health.
We are drafting a clear action plan to how we can give back something that will last long and create a meaningful impact in a lot of people lives. Stay tuned fore more.
We urge all companies young and old. Big and small to join this great movement. http://www.pledge1percent.org/

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.
This is what it might look like in production:
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.
