Bringing dental care to people in Rural India through smart mobile technology.
Most people in India’s rural communities have never seen a dentist, nor hope to. Through simple mobile technology, “Pocket Dentist” makes dental care accessible to over 6 million people in media dark regions.
We leveraged the “missed call,” a common practice in India. The user makes a call and hangs up. Pocket Dentist calls back. The user explains their oral health issue, and voice recognition identifies the problem and responds with solutions in real time.
