Pearl has established itself at the forefront of the dental AI revolution with a suite of computer vision solutions aimed at elevating the standard of dental care by improving precision and consistency. Second Opinion applies computer vision AI technology to identify key pathologic and nonpathologic conditions in dental radiographs, including dental caries (cavities), bone loss, periapical radiolucencies (root abscesses), calculus (tartar), and faulty restorations.

It is the only dental AI software cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to detect multiple forms of disease, as well as the only such software cleared for radiologic evaluation of adolescent and teenage patients.

“At Pearl, our goal is to bring dentistry’s most advanced clinical artificial intelligence systems to practices around the world and fundamentally advance dental diagnosis, treatment, clinical performance and practice management,” said Ophir Tanz, founder and CEO of Pearl. “AI-informed decision-making will elevate the standard of care and help to ensure optimal patient health outcomes. We are honored to have been recognized by such a distinguished panel of thought leaders and educators.”

Second Opinion is the only dental AI software with multi-national regulatory clearances including in the U.S., European Union, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Brazil.
