"With Second Opinion cleared, patients in the UAE can begin to gain the many benefits of AI-assisted dentistry and greater assurance in quality of care at Second Opinion-equipped dental practices," said Dr. Oussama Alaoui, Head of Prosthodontics at Harmony Medical Center in Abu Dhabi, "I look forward to witnessing the revolutionary impact and advantages that AI will bring to our dental care."

Second Opinion applies computer vision technologies to detect a comprehensive array of pathologies, existing restorations and natural anatomy in dental radiographs. The system analyzes radiographs in real time, allowing dentists to display, review, add or reject the system’s detections while conducting exams.

"Our Second Opinion technology enables more efficient and transparent doctor-patient communication while facilitating a higher standard of care," said Ophir Tanz, CEO and founder of Pearl. "With the implementation of the platform in the UAE, we are excited to take a first step toward driving growth and better patient outcomes across Middle Eastern dentistry."
