Overjet named to Fast Company's 2023 List of the World's Most Innovative Companies

Overjet, the industry leader in dental artificial intelligence, has been named to Fast Company's annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies for 2023, joining the ranks of OpenAI, NASA, DeepMind, Nvidia, Slack, Canva, and more. According to a March 8 news release, Overjet earned the standing of No. 7 in the healthcare category and is recognized by Fast Company for pioneering AI efforts to improve oral health.

Fast Company's editors and writers sought out the companies making the biggest strides around the globe and vetted thousands of candidates. This year's list highlights the businesses at the forefront of their respective industries, paving the way for the innovations of tomorrow. These companies are setting the standard with some of the greatest accomplishments of the modern world.

"What a strange and thrilling year it has been to honor this year's Most Innovative Companies," said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. "This year's list compiles some of the most cutting-edge groundbreakers who are changing our world every single day, from legacy organizations like McDonald's to upstarts like MrBeast and institutions such as NASA. Everyone on this list does something completely, uniquely different, yet, they all have one thing in common: innovation,"

Overjet's AI analyzes and annotates X-rays in real time to help dentists detect disease, enhance clinical consistency, and elevate provider-patient communication. Overjet is the only dental AI technology that is FDA-cleared to quantify bone level measurements, detect and outline decay (cavities), and detect calculus on radiographs.

Wardah Inam, PhD, the CEO and co-founder of Overjet, said in the news release that the recognition is a powerful validation of our mission and of the efforts of partners and customers who are trailblazers in using AI to improve patient care.
