Reimagining Oral Care for the AI Era: How do you adapt to the future needs of your patients

We are on the brink of an entirely new era for oral care. Tomorrow’s patients, accustomed to real-time, personalized experiences in their lives as connected consumers, will demand an unprecedented level of service, care, and insight from dental practitioners. Automation offers definitive opportunities to save money and time but also influences the way you engage with your community. However, while technology may reshape the patient journey, for clinical professionals the challenge remains a personal and human one: how do you adapt to a changing environment, while nurturing the human connections that matter? How do you learn and grow as a professional so that you stay on the cutting edge of the needs of your patients?

Mike is the CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing companies for the 21st century. He advises leaders on how to thrive in the current era of disruptive technological change. Mike’s bestselling books include ‘Futuretainment’ and ‘The Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas’. Each week he interviews provocative thinkers, innovators and troublemakers on his weekly podcast, ‘Between Worlds’. A true nomad, Mike travels over 300 days a year worldwide, researching trends, collecting innovation case studies and presenting on the future of business. A prolific writer and commentator, Mike’s views have appeared in a wide range of international publications including BusinessWeek, Forbesand The Wall Street Journal.
