Dental informatics (DI) is the application of computer and information science to improve dental practice, research, education and management.  Dental informatics is a sub-specialty of medical informatics.

At TeethCloud, we strongly believe that the richness of available digital technologies and methodologies already finding their way into dentistry will continue to help improve oral health around the globe.

Today, many shortcomings exist though in the coordinated application of DI.  For example, the absence of a standard dentistry data model, or the lack of easy and realiable exchangeability of oral health data; the lack of digital treatment planning between the patient and the dentist or hygienist; the poor availability of up-to-date public oral health statistics, or the lack of digital academic curricula and student grade performance … to name just a few.

We believe that focus on DI  through this platform will stimulate the improvement of oral health by connecting oral health providers (dentists and hygienists), oral health services receivers (the patients), as well as manufacturers in the oral health sector (materials and equipment suppliers, software developers).
