Software of Excellence partners with Pearl to become one of the first Practice Management System Providers to Deliver Dental Artificial Intelligence to the UK, Ireland and Asia-Pacific Markets

This groundbreaking partnership expands access to one of dentistry’s most advanced dental artificial intelligence technology for practices across Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and the UK.

Pearl, a global leader in dental AI solutions, today announced that Software of Excellence, a leader in dental software, has selected Pearl as its new, exclusive dental artificial intelligence (AI) provider. Through the partnership, Software of Excellence will distribute Pearl’s Second Opinion® as a standalone software to its customer base across Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the UK markets, as well as offer native access to Pearl’s radiologic capabilities within Software of Excellence’s leading practice management system (PMS), EXACT. This landmark partnership sees Software of Excellence become the first PMS provider to bring AI to the UK and Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets.

Second Opinion's AI feature set will be natively integrated with the imaging modals of EXACT, one of the market top practice management dental software solutions in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the UK trusted by almost 6,000 customers for over 30 years. EXACT’s imaging feature set is currently supplied by Examine Pro, the UK's dominant imaging platform.

“Our partnership with Pearl is a natural next step in our 30-year journey. We work with thousands of dental practices to help them manage and grow their businesses to deliver exceptional patient care,” said Tom Mundy, Henry Schein One General Manager, UK and Ireland.

Pearl’s Second Opinion is a pioneering chairside AI software with global regulatory clearances to help dentists detect numerous conditions commonly diagnosed in dental x-rays. The AI delivers its findings in real-time for patient-facing display in the dental operatory, helping dentists ensure the accuracy of the x-ray evaluations and enabling them to better communicate diagnoses to patients.

“Pearl is on a mission to shape the future of dentistry and partnering with Software of Excellence – an organisation trusted by dentists across the world – gives a great boost to that mission,” said Ophir Tanz, founder and CEO of Pearl. “Together, we are enabling a higher standard of care for Software of Excellence customers and helping to enhance dental AI efficiency by empowering practices in leading dental markets with seamless access to one of dentistry’s most comprehensive AI-powered toolset.”
