Risas Dental and Braces Taps Pearl to Bring AI-Enhanced Dental Care to Patients Across Southwest

“Our commitment to providing patients with affordable and accessible care includes an equal commitment to delivering care of the highest caliber,” said Risas Dental’s chairman and CEO Jeffrey Adams. “In partnering with Pearl, we’re putting the most innovative and effective diagnostic aid and patient communication technology available into our clinicians’ hands to help them deliver on that mission with every patient we serve.”

Pearl has established itself at the forefront of dentistry’s AI revolution with two computer vision solutions for dental practices.

Second Opinion is the first-and-only chairside AI software cleared by the FDA to help dentists detect numerous common conditions found in patient x-rays. In addition to the unique breadth of its pathology detection capabilities, Second Opinion is also the only chairside AI radiologic aid authorized by the FDA to read both bitewing and periapical x-rays of adult teeth in patients as young as 12 years old. The company’s clinical performance software, Practice Intelligence® applies those clinical AI capabilities in conjunction with patient treatment data to uncover actionable insights that dental practices apply to elevate practice operations and clinical performance.

“Our partnership with Risas brings the benefits of AI to one of dentistry’s most dynamic, forward-looking and patient-centric practice groups,” said Ophir Tanz, founder and CEO of Pearl. “Risas and Pearl share a goal of transforming the way dentistry is offered in the United States and together we’re accelerating that transformation with a technology that makes the best care more accessible to more patients.”
