global dental imaging

SOTA Imaging and Pearl, two dental solution providers, have announced that they are forming a partnership to equip Pearl’s FDA-cleared Second Opinion® artificial intelligence (AI) solution with SOTA’s SOTA Cloud® dental imaging software. A global provider of dental AI solutions, SOTA Imaging offers premium quality dental optic technologies to world-class research facilities. On the other hand, Pearl is molding the future of dental care through their computer vision platforms and AI solutions. Since receiving FDA clearance in March of 2022, Second Opinion® has been enabling dentists to spot cavities in X-rays more easily.

Here’s what the founders of SOTA and Pearl are saying:

“Together with SOTA, we are pushing the envelope of dental imaging further toward a fully AI-powered dental future,” said Ophir Tanz, Pearl’s founder and CEO. “AI will be a basic utility in dentistry and we see obvious advantages to making that utility an integral feature of the tools that dentists are already using. Through this partnership, dentists using SOTA Cloud® can seamlessly access Pearl’s AI capabilities to obtain better, more consistent insights from patient imagery and present cases to patients more effectively –– leading to better outcomes, a higher standard of care and more productive patient communication.”

“Understanding the needs of clinicians and ensuring that dentists are able to focus solely on providing the best possible patient care has always been the top priority when developing our software,” said SOTA founder and president Brian Kim. “Our partnership with Pearl speaks directly to that focus by giving practices using SOTA Cloud® push-button access to the most innovative AI technology available for streamlined patient communication and improved image-based diagnostic evaluations.”

Through SOTA Imaging and Pearl’s partnership, dental radiographs can easily be captured and displayed within a single software platform, and AI-assisted clinical evaluation is possible.


As a whole, most of the dental imaging market has been dominated by a few large companies and this prevents new companies from entering into this market. However, with the partnership between SOTA and Pearl, smaller companies with a less dominance stance might be able to increase their market shares.
