Council of European Dentists (CED) resolution on Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry

The Council of European Dentists would like to share its recent resolution on Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry. The CED position focuses on different aspects such as the role of AI, its application in dentistry, transparency and liability, education and CPD as well as the implementation of AI. Additionally, in its resolution, the CED drafted a list of recommendations, including that: New digital technologies that use algorithms can help dentists in making diagnosis, but they should never replace them in this task. CED believes that algorithmic transparency is crucial to ensure the need to respect patient rights to information and explanation. Privacy of the individual patient must be safeguarded. In terms of data collection, patient consent must always be obtained. An educated, well-trained workforce is a paramount to the successful introduction of new technologies into healthcare An ethical and regulatory framework is needed. CED calls on the European Commission to design a robust legal framework for liability with respect to the use of AI in healthcare. The involvement of healthcare professionals at an early stage of every discussion on digital technologies in healthcare is essential.
