AI Dental Care Company Upgrades Scan Quality for Restoration

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Pearl, the AI dental care company that is delivering AI and computer vision solutions that advance efficiency, accuracy, transparency and patient care, is launching its Scan Clarity Score, a product that addresses the inefficient and expensive process of working with poor quality intraoral scans for dental restorations.

Paramount Dental Labs, one of the country’s oldest and largest dental laboratories, is a pilot customer.

For a patient, when it comes to getting crowns, implants, and other dental restoration products into their mouth, time can pass at a glacial pace.

While dentists are eager to provide the best care and solutions to their patients’ dental needs, the quality of dental scans can hold up the manufacturing process due to myriad issues: lack of a visible margin, missing contact points, or defects in the scan itself. All of this leads to costly product duplication, assumptions and interpretation that lead to additional mistakes, and wasted administrative time between the dental practice and the dental lab.

All the while the patient waits anxiously to be relieved of pain, to be able to eat regularly, or to feel confident in their physical appearance again.

Pearl’s Scan Clarity Score allows dental labs to score and bucket each patient scan based on margin clarity. If the scan is of high enough quality, the margin is automatically marked and sent on for crown design. If the margin clarity score is low, it is flagged for human intervention and/or for a call to be placed to the dentist. By systematically processing the quality of margins, dental labs, dentists, and, most importantly, patients benefit from higher quality dental restorations.

Paramount Dental Studio, which has already been using Pearl for AI-powered margin marking (Pearl Smart Margin), has begun to integrate Pearl’s Scan Clarity Score to increase the speed with which they can deliver dental restorations to dentists and their patients. Scan Clarity Score’s ability to reduce human error and manual process iterations in the restoration process has the potential to create a bottom line impact for Paramount.

“One of the trickiest aspects of incorporating AI into our business is finding datasets large enough. Predictive modeling simply falls short if there is not enough data,” said Philip Kim, Paramount Dental Studio. “Pearl clearly has a big head start with its dataset, the size of which was one of the reasons we developed so much confidence in their margin scoring ability. We’re looking forward to continuing to integrate Pearl AI and computer vision into our business.”

Artificial intelligence deploys a combination of computer vision (the processing and understanding of digital imagery), machine learning (data-driven algorithms that enable computers to learn underlying patterns about the data they process), and predictive analytics (statistical modeling used to find or forecast patterns and outcomes).

Pearl trained its AI platform on millions of images annotated by leading global experts in dentistry and uses computer vision and machine learning to identify dozens of pathologies with greater accuracy. Pearl’s Scan Clarity Score is the latest product from the company to alter the dental care landscape.

“After seeing strong interest in our Smart Margin product, the launch of Scan Clarity Score is a natural next step, with strong applicability to the dental laboratory market,” said Ophir Tanz, CEO, Pearl. “The cost and efficiency savings enabled by Scan Clarity Score also underscore the big potential AI has for dental laboratories. We look forward to continuing to roll out new AI and computer vision features for dental providers, DSOs, dental insurers and dental laboratories alike.”

RAGE is Latest Venue to Fall Victim to the Pandemic

Another LGBTQ+ Nightlife Destination Has Fallen Victim to the Pandemic

WEST HOLLYWOOD (L.A. Magazine) — Rage nightclub has been a destination for LGBTQ+ nightlife in the bustling Santa Monica Boulevard corridor of West Hollywood for decades. Now, nearly 40 years after first opening its doors, the club has announced it has permanently closed, yet another local business to collapse amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rage nightclub management lays some portion of the blame on their landlord, Monte Overstreet. The club’s now-former general manager, Ron Madrill, told Q Voice News that rent for the location was already “very high” prior to operations shutting down in March. He says he believes an impasse over rent payments may have contributed to Rage’s closure.

Overstreet also reportedly owns the space formerly occupied by neighboring bar Flaming Saddles Saloon, which also announced […]

Workers protest outside Ralphs in Hollywood where 21 have tested positive for coronavirus

HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) — Workers rallied Friday outside a Ralphs store in Hollywood where 21 people have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The group called on the store to take more aggressive action when staff test positive for the virus, and to ramp up efforts to protect the grocery store employees, who are considered essential workers on the front lines of the pandemic.

They said they speak for thousands of workers who are afraid they aren’t getting enough protection as the virus continues to spread countywide, infecting more than 24,000 as of Friday.

The Ralphs at 7257 W. Sunset Blvd. has had an outbreak involving several workers who tested positive for the virus, according to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, which lists businesses and […]

‘Stay Put, Order In’ and Dine With Friends on Zoom, Says Mayor

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — WeHo is home to some of the best restaurants in the world and our community members are used to gathering around restaurant tables and enjoying meals together. Now, there’s an opportunity to, instead, gather around kitchen tables at home and enjoy a meal (or many!) while supporting our local restaurants.

“One of the worst things about the Safer At Home directive is being disconnected from friends, neighbors, and the city around us,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “Don’t be alone if you don’t have to be – take advantage of the technology out there and invite a friend to Zoom in for Ziti or share some Farfalle over FaceTime.”

Mealtime is a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends, family, and loved ones using virtual teleconferencing technology, while partaking in your favorite delivered or takeout food.

City Encourages Residents to Support Local Restaurants During Safer At Home Orders

Many West Hollywood restaurants remain open and are offering takeout, curbside, and delivery meals, which are sensitive to social distancing during the emergency. The City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to offer a directory of “Stay Put, Order In” eateries in West Hollywood, which is accessible by visitingwww.weho.org/coronavirus (click the “Stay Put, Order In” link!) or www.wehochamber.com/dinein. This list is updated daily.

“We need to start hanging out together, and talking, and seeing each other again. So, why not plan to #WeHoDinnerConnect this week – maybe Saturday at 8 p.m.? Or Sunday at 7 p.m.? Or even just 15 minutes of screen-to-screen gossip,” said Mayor D’Amico. “And you don’t have to cook a thing… local restaurants have meals and menus tailored to take-away choices and they’re ready to send food over to your house or make arrangements for you to pick it up.”

If picking up food, remember to wear face coverings, which are required to enter essential businesses.
