Immersive Virtual Environment for Dental Restorative Techniques

Dentists and dental assistants are required to complete continuing education. Blue Light’s first technology introduced in 2010 was a patient simulator used for teaching hands-on light curing skills. This technology incorporates a mannequin head, expensive electronics and required an in-person course which is less desirable in the current covid-19 landscape. Exploring other mediums to deliver required educational training will be important over the next foreseeable future.

Continuous calibration, interpolation and predictive analytics using Machine Learning

The company provides devices to measure quality of curing light used in dental procedures. These devices produce high volume and high velocity data. This data is then used to forecast a future state and to make a well informed business/operation decision according to an expected future state. One of the challenges in application of such technology is to improve prediction accuracy of the forecast. The company has developed prediction models based on physical chemistry that have been very useful to both the vendors and dentists.
