Selected Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry papers
FDI White Paper on Artificial Intelligence - DOWNLOAD PDF
The FDI White Paper on Artificial Intelligence explores AI's potential benefits and challenges in dentistry across four key domains: individual patient care, community and public health, education and the workforce, and research. AI can improve patient care through image analysis, predictive dentistry, evidence-backed planning, therapeutic recommendations, and patient communication. It also plays a vital role in oral health surveillance and serving underserved populations. In education, workforce planning, diversification, and research, AI promises significant impacts. However, there are concerns regarding bias, accessibility, interoperability, and data protection when implementing AI in dentistry.
