Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As one of the most innovative and disruptive technologies today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize current clinical practice and research in many medical fields, including oral medicine. Advanced AI technologies enable the analysis of diverse, multimodal, and complex data at the individual and system levels, which may facilitate a deeper and more holistic understanding of health and disease. In recent years, an increasing number of AI models, especially deep learning, have been developed in various disciplines of oral medicine for a wide range of clinical and research applications. Clinically relevant AI tools that are capable of fulfilling technical requirements with promising commercial potential are expected to bring us closer to a more precise and personalized management of patients with a variety of oral, maxillofacial, and head and neck conditions in the near future. This Special Issue of Healthcare seeks commentaries, original research, short reports, and reviews on recent progress and trends in AI across all oral disciplines and head and neck diseases, including but not limited to AI-assisted diagnosis, prediction, and treatment. The articles in this Special Issue are expected to provide clinicians, researchers, and healthcare organizers with an up-to-date understanding of the potential application of AI in oral medicine as well as suggestions on the issues and obstacles encountered in this area.
