The Dental Design Studio is the first company to establish a claim in the metaverse for dentistry. The British dental firm has 15 physical facilities in the United Kingdom, as well as one in the Sandbox.
The dentistry firm intends to construct interactive mirror versions of its surgeries on the property. Patients can sit in a dentist’s chair, have a consultation, get virtual treatments, talk to the staff, and study oral hygiene videos in the dental metaverse.
Users can design their own avatars and even alter their appearance, right down to their teeth. While people are unable to receive dental treatment, the company recognizes the commercial potential of establishing a presence online.
Dental education possibilities in the metaverse
All of this appears to be a waste of time rather than a useful application of the metaverse. However, there is a unique educational opportunity here.
Dental courses and lectures, according to the dental chain, can be offered online. Regional surgery can now reach an international audience with this new initiative.
“At The Dental Design Studio, we have always been interested in technology and have tried to innovate in any area that will benefit our patients. As people are increasingly starting to use the metaverse as a form of social interaction, we got the idea to create a group of dental practices in the metaverse – giving patients the chance to experience the dentist in a different way. ”Dr Jeff Sherer
Dentists, according to Dr. Sherer, can benefit from having their surgeries in the digital world. Meanwhile, a startup called Immersive Touch is utilizing virtual reality to help dentists rehearse procedures before doing them in real life.
