Dental Attendant is a conversational chat bot that’s easy to deploy on dental office websites.  By customizing and focusing Artificial Intelligence technology to help office administrators, our Dental Attendant program is pioneering the role that automated messaging systems play in the dental industry. We’re real proud of the functionality  of our chat bot program, which is so much more than a smart answering machine.  We’ve made an invisible tool which can lighten the load at any dental clinic’s front desk, and add more functionality to your whole business enterprise.  Our ‘robot’ innovation is digital, and works on the web, but the idea of making a physical robot staff member dates back almost one hundred years.

The featured image comes courtesy of Westinghouse Company, and shows Televox, a phone answering robot that was invented by Roy J. Wensley in New York in 1928.  This simple machine executed commands given over the telephone.  The ‘robot’ was filled with radio receiver parts.  He was created to be a trustworthy and obedient caretaker of a house when the owners were away.  The mechanism consists primarily of a series of electrical relays, each sensitive to a sound of a certain pitch, and capable of translating that sound into specified mechanical action, such as opening and closing switches.  Our Dental Attendant is the great, great grandchild of this simple phone action-ed device which could not even record messages yet.

Now You Can Create Smart Staff

Imagine being able to make a staff member who could work around the clock, seven days a week.  Thee benefits of robots has increased their flexibility with being capable of performing a variety of tasks and applications. They are more precise and consistent than human workers.  Robots also allow for increased production and increased profits because they can complete tasks faster


bots don’t get distracted or need to take breaks. They don’t request vacation time or ask to leave an hour early. A robot will never feel stressed out and start running slower. They also don’t need to be invited to employee meetings or training session. Robots can work all the time, and this speeds up production. They keep your employees from having to overwork themselves to meet high pressure deadlines or seemingly impossible standards.

Robots are consistent – high quality – every time

Robots never need to divide their attention between a multitude of things. Their work is never contingent on the work of other people. They won’t have unexpected emergencies, and they won’t need to be relocated to complete a different time sensitive task. They’re always there, and they’re doing what they’re supposed to do. Automation is typically far more reliable than human labor.

Robots will always deliver quality. Since they’re programmed for precise, repetitive motion, they’re less likely to make mistakes. In some ways, robots are simultaneously an employee and a quality control system. A lack of quirks and preferences, combined with the eliminated possibility of human error, will create a predictably perfect product every time.

Since robots

Since robots are often assigned to perform tasks that people don’t particularly enjoy, like menial work, repetitive motion, or dangerous jobs, your employees are more likely to be happy. They’ll be focusing on more engaging work that’s less likely to grind down their nerves. They might want to take advantage of additional educational opportunities, utilize your employee wellness program, or participate in an innovative workplace project. They’ll be happy to let the robots do the work that leaves them feeling burned out.


Robots don’t take jobs away.  They merely change people’s jobs.

the tasks that exist in the office.

Robots need people for monitoring and supervision. The more robots we need, the more people we’ll need to build those robots. By training your employees to work with robots, you’re giving them a reason to stay motivated in their position with your company. They’ll be there for the advancements and they’ll have the unique opportunity to develop a new set of tech or engineering related skills.


Robots can’t do everything. Some jobs absolutely need to be completed by humans.  If your human employees aren’t caught up doing the things that could have easily be left for robots, they’ll be available and productive. They can talk to customers, answer emails and social media comments, help with branding and marketing, and think of new ways to reach out and sell services.  You’ll be amazed at how much they can accomplish when the grunt work of running your world isn’t weighing them down.
