Many people have heard about artificial intelligence and how it can help the business world. But most have never had the opportunity to see amazing new A.I. devices – like robots – up close. That will change for thousands of people working in the dental field who will attend the Greater New York Dental Meeting next week.
SurfCT, the international renown dental technology company, will demonstrate how a humanoid robot named Pepper can enhance productivity at dental offices worldwide. SurfCT will demonstrate Pepper’s capabilities alongside Dr. Sharon Huang, a cosmetic dentist with a thriving practice, Les Belles, near Grand Central and a recently-launched second location in midtown, said Paul Vigario, founder and CEO of SurfCT.
“We are going to show off an exciting product in Pepper that allows dentists to automate their offices and make their practices far more efficient,” he said. “People are going to be amazed at what Pepper can do to help their practices and enhance the patient experience.”
Pepper has cameras, sonars, microphones, speakers and even the ability to perceive human emotion. She has the emotional intelligence to adapt behavior to the mood of the person speaking to her, according to her developers, SoftBank Robotics, makers of humanoid robots. The robot uses visual and voice recognition and moves fluidly throughout her environment.
Dental practices all over the world, including Dr. Huang’s Les Belles, have welcomed Pepper into their practices with overwhelming success.
“The heart and soul of Les Belles is about creating a personalized experience based on people, that serves people, to make people feel beautiful,” Dr. Huang said. “Pepper fits perfectly into our vision and those goals.”
Standing nearly four-feet tall with blue and green eyes, Pepper has a touch-screen, smart tablet connected to her stomach. She greets patients in a soft-spoken voice at dental practices.
According to “Smile It’s Viral,” which works in collaboration with SurfCT to bring Pepper to the masses in the dental industry, the humanoid robot can help dental and orthodontic practices in the following ways:
- Unique office based storytelling: Pepper has the ability to tell stories about the office and its staff while showing picture and videos on her tablet.
- Pepper dances: She has a couple of fun dances that will delight and entertain your patients.
- She answers up to 100 questions: Pepper comes with a database of questions she can answer, but you will also be able to create your own set of questions and answers customized to your liking.
