Pearl’s most notable 2023 milestones include:
- New Patents: Pearl cemented the innovation at the core of its technology with a new industry patent for its chairside AI disease detection software, the second patent for its breakthrough Second Opinion® technology. The patent grants Pearl the exclusive rights to the technology system supporting the software’s application programming interface (API). Pearl was also issued a patent granting exclusive rights to the computer vision and analytics system at the core of its pioneering clinical performance software, Practice Intelligence®, bringing the company’s total number of U.S. patents to 12.
- Global Expansion: Pearl further solidified its position at the forefront of the dental AI revolution with numerous additional global regulatory authorizations in 2023, including clearances in Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Argentina and Switzerland. Second Opinion® also became the first-and-only AI-based dental pathology detection software to gain Class IIa medical device certification under the updated European Union Medical Device Regulation (EU-MDR), one of the world’s most robust health tech regulations. At the 2023 International Dental Show in Cologne, Germany, Pearl announced plans to expand access to its Practice Intelligence® solution for the European market.
