Dentistry Today


Robin the Robot from Expper Technologies is designed to support patients including children during medical treatment such as dentistry and alleviate stress and anxiety by fostering meaningful connections via AI-based peer-to-peer interactions, empathic conversations, and various therapeutic techniques.

Robin learns each patient’s name and relates to them through exciting conversations about favorite movies, toys, and future dreams, Expper Technologies said. Robin also is designed to educate patients about dental hygiene, including correct brushing techniques, schedules, and foods to avoid, and motivate them to improve.

Patients who interact with Robin not only gain confidence during their dental visits but also look forward to returning to see Robin again, Expper Technologies said. Robin’s compassionate and kind presence turns any medical setting into a positive environment for all, according to the company.
