Dental AI powerhouse Overjet has announced a partnership with Seattle Study Club, the world’s largest network of dental professionals. A recognized leader in continuing dental education, Seattle Study Club has more than 260 affiliates worldwide across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
The partnership strengthens the two powerhouses’ shared commitment to increase impact on the dental community and patient care.
Since 1994, Seattle Study Club has equipped its members with industry-leading resources and knowledge to thrive in the rapidly changing dental market and to deliver the best patient care possible. The international Seattle Study Club network consists of general practitioners, oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, orthodontists, pedodontists, lab technicians, hygienists, office team and all dental professionals.
The partnership comes at a key moment when dentistry is in the midst of a foundational transformation. Innovations in advanced technologies such as AI are reshaping many aspects of dental practice, from clinical decision-making to doctor-patient communication.
“Seattle Study Club has always focused on proper diagnosis and Overjet’s innovations greatly aid in this arena,” Dr. Parag Kachalia, DDS, tells Dentistry Today. Dr. Kachalia serves as Director of Educational Development and Industry Relations for Seattle Study Club. “In addition, a key reason Seattle Study Club has decided to partner with Overjet is because the company is creating solutions that allow proper diagnosis in conjunction with appropriate reimbursement for the care clinicians provide.”
Guided by patient-centric AI, Overjet’s FDA-cleared technology integrates with major practice management and imaging systems to guide clinicians to arrive at precise and accurate diagnostic decisions.
“Every single day, Overjet is inspired by the opportunity to work with dentists to enhance the clinical decision-making process to impact patient care,” Dr. Christopher Balaban, DMD, Vice President of Clinical Affairs at Overjet, tells Dentistry Today. “Modern practices are realizing the clinical and operational value of innovative technologies and moving towards smarter operations that leverage AI. Overjet aims to lead the way in assisting clinicians in harnessing innovative approaches in their operations to deliver better patient care. We are thrilled to partner with Seattle Study Club, a juggernaut in cultivating excellence in comprehensive dentistry.”
“There are times in our practice life when it appears a sea change is going to occur and the advancements in artificial intelligence appear to be one of these changes,” says Dr. Kachalia. Artificial intelligence should not be viewed as a threat; rather AI is going to be a virtual colleague that helps our diagnostic ability.”
By combining deep expertise in dentistry and advanced engineering, Overjet develops accurate and quantified ways to detect pathologies, and integrates actionable insights into systems and workflows to operationalize a feedback loop between payors, providers, and patients.

It’s been non-stop rapid growth for Overjet since the Boston-based company came out of stealth in 2020 with the launch of powerful dental AI software.
The company was founded in 2018 by experts from MIT and Harvard School of Dental Medicine and has assembled the largest and most seasoned team of technologists and domain experts with deep AI, dental, and insurance experience. Overjet became the first dental A.I. company to be cleared by the FDA, wrote Fortune. At Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Next Gen conference, Fortune interviewed Overjet CEO and co-founder Wardah Inam, PhD on dental AI and moonshot thinking.
Overjet has quickly emerged into a global leader in dental AI solutions for providers and payers. Every day, Overjet’s dental AI products are in use by some of the largest dental groups to enable better clinical decision-making.
Earlier this year, Overjet announced a partnership with Benco Dental, the nation’s largest independent distributor of oral healthcare technology and supplies, making Overjet’s dental AI accessible to dentists across the United States.
