What is said to be, the world’s smartest dental clinic, has opened in the city of Umeå with innovations that provide completely new working methods.
Hologram that with the headset Microsoft Hololens shows images of the patient’s teeth, 3D dental scanner, voice-controlled devices and a digital dental clinic receptionist are some of the features at the newly inaugurated clinic in Umeå.
To be at the forefront of innovations is a hallmark of Umeå, Northern Sweden. The fact that the city of Umeå is included as one of six finalists in the competition to become Europe’s capital of innovation has been told in previous news. The competition is scheduled for 6 November in Lisbon when we will find out if Umeå wins the victory.
Whatever happens, Umeå is already a winner in the field of dental care. The world’s smartest dental clinic is being set up in Umeå.
Smart technology in dental care
“Our vision is to be the world’s smartest dental clinic, both in terms of digital solutions and working methods,” says Anna-Maria Stenlund Berggren, acting dental director at Folktandvården Västerbotten.
The premises are newly built, the employees are newly employed and the listed patients are new. The clinic breathes new thinking and will be a so-called test bed, a workplace where ideas are tested and evaluated.
“Here we can try different solutions before going to other dental care, it is much more sustainable in the long run,” says Anna-Maria Stenlund Berggren.
