Sunbit, a company building financial technology for everyday expenses, and Overjet, a dental artificial intelligence (AI) platform for x-ray analysis and clinical insights, announced a partnership that aims to provide access to high quality technology for dental practices and its patients.

Furthermore, Overjet and Sunbit will work together to educate offices about the benefits of adopting and combining technology to help improve care and experience throughout the patient journey.

Overjet’s FDA-cleared AI technology analyses x-rays to detect decay, quantify bone level measurements, and identify other indicators of disease. By adding colour and measurements, the AI-powered insights help dentists diagnose and patients better understand their treatment needs. Meanwhile Sunbit’s technology makes treatment more accessible by providing patients access to payment terms, no fees, and a fast approval process, according to the company.

“We were looking for a partner with an established footprint, an impressive growth trajectory, and advanced financing technology because these factors help the most patients better afford the treatments surfaced through our x-ray analysis. Sunbit was the obvious choice. Dental practices and DSOs using Sunbit technology have already seen up to a 150% increase in patient approval rates,” said CEO and founder of Overjet, Wardah Inam.

Sunbit’s technology is reportedly used in 9,000 practices and is adding more than 500 practices per month, with the company attributing this growth to its technology in practices of different sizes. Cost was cited as one of the biggest challenges to receiving dental care by the companies, inspiring the partnership between the two AI-powered companies.

“Patients experience better outcomes by being able to get the treatments they need, and patients often accept treatment plans faster and more consistently when fair and accessible financing is available,” said head of strategic alliances for Sunbit, Robert Nunziato. “It is no coincidence that our two technology-forward companies offer better outcomes to more practices and patients together.”
