Pearl, the dentistry-focused offshoot of Los Angeles-based artificial intelligence startup GumGum, launched on May 8 after raising $11 million in Series A funding, TechCrunch reports.

The company has already developed three products that integrate AI and computer vision into dental practices.

"[Pearl] will streamline tedious, repetitive tasks, enhance profitability across dentistry, and, most importantly, it will improve the standard of care by validating diagnoses, removing large elements of uncertainty from the dental equation," Ophir Tanz, who stepped down as GumGum's CEO to lead Pearl, told TechCrunch.
