Overjet and New England Family Dentistry Partner to Bring Artificial Intelligence to over 50 Dental Practices
Boston, Mass. — New England Family Dentistry and Overjet (www.Overjet.ai) today announced a partnership to bring Overjet’s industry-leading dental artificial intelligence (AI) software to the dental support organization’s network of over 50 dental clinics in New England. Overjet’s Clinical Intelligence Platform combines insights from real-time dental AI analysis and existing practice management software data to support clinical and business teams.
Overjet Clinical Director Dr. Chris Balaban, DMD, training the New England Family Dentistry team.
“Our team regularly invests in training and tools to improve patient care across our network of clinics,” said Dr. Patrick Assioun, DMD, CEO of New England Family Dentistry. “After months of use, we were impressed by Overjet’s ability to support and guide our clinical providers which ultimately helps them deliver consistent and high quality patient care. AI has already had a great impact in businesses and medicine, and dentistry is no different. AI is the future of dentistry, and Overjet is the leader in the field. From the hygienist to the dentist to leadership, Overjet’s dental AI gives the team new data and insights to deliver the best dental care.”
Overjet’s dental AI technology is built on years of R&D and testing by machine learning scientists, software engineers, and dentists. Earlier this year, Overjet received FDA clearance for its Dental Assist product, the first dental AI company to receive such a clearance. Overjet has made rapid inroads with dental insurers, counting as customers 16 major carriers who serve over 73 million Americans. The company plans for its technology to soon support shared reimbursement standards between providers and payers, solving a major pain point for dentists.
“New England Family Dentistry is at the vanguard of improving dental care,” said Dr. Wardah Inam, PhD, CEO and co-founder of Overjet. “We’re honored to work with such a patient-focused and forward-thinking dental team. Our partnership is driven by a shared belief that supporting dentists with AI technology will lead to the best patient health outcomes.”
Today’s partnership with New England Family Dentistry comes on the heels of other significant developments for Overjet. Last month, the company announced it had raised $27 million in Series A financing to address significant customer demand and accelerate new product development.
Overjet is the global leader in dental artificial intelligence, helping both payers and providers improve patient care. In 2021, the company received FDA clearance for its Dental Assist product designed for dental practices, the first dental AI company to receive such a clearance. The company was founded by experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology 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.
