Title: The Safety of Robotic Dentistry: Digitisation, System Design and Risk Mapping for Automation
Autonomous robotic dental procedures have great potential to act as the gateway technology to true surgical autonomy due to the lower risks and accessible surgical site. We propose a roadmap towards autonomous robotic dentistry while maintaining a focus on patient safety. The risk of automating current dental procedures and methods to overcome challenges are discussed. Further exploration into the management and assessment of spatial risk is undertaken by observing instrument orientation and pathways for operating in the oral cavity. This investigation involves the use of MATLAB and Unity for simulation.
Evie Deaker completed her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering (Honours) at the University of Sydney in 2019. She is now undertaking her PhD in the ACFR in Biomedical Engineering, working on The Safety of Robotic Dentistry. She is interested in the robotic technology with a focus on safety to ensure that advances in global healthcare systems are managed appropriately to benefit patients and clinicians.
