A very available and transparent(ish) version of AI generated content has taken the world by storm over the last couple of months. ChatGPT and other applications have allowed people to generate amazing and relevant content almost instantly. If you haven't seen it and messed around with it, you might want to take a look.
I had Chat GPT write an episode of the Very Dental Shorts. Using the prompt: "Write a 15 minute episode of the Very Dental Shorts where I explain to my dental listeners how we can use AI in our practice and our marketing."
Then I had Elevenlabs generate a virtual voice of myself and read the ChatGPT copy that it created.
The result is in today's podcast and I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it. You should take a listen and then join us in the Very Dental Facebook group to discuss it!
The transcript of the ChatGPT generated content:
Welcome to another episode of Very Dental Shorts, the podcast for dental professionals who want to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in dentistry. Today, we're going to talk about a topic that's on everyone's mind these days - AI, or artificial intelligence - and how it can help us in our practice and our marketing.
First, let's talk about AI in the context of dentistry. There are many ways that AI can be used in our practice, from diagnostic tools to treatment planning and patient management. For example, AI algorithms can be trained to analyze radiographic images and identify early signs of tooth decay or periodontal disease. This can help us detect problems earlier and provide more effective treatment to our patients.
AI can also be used to assist with treatment planning. By analyzing a patient's dental records and medical history, AI algorithms can help us determine the best course of treatment for each individual patient. This can lead to more accurate diagnoses and better treatment outcomes.
In addition, AI can help us manage our patient records more efficiently. By automating routine tasks like appointment scheduling and reminders, we can free up more time to focus on patient care. And by analyzing patient data, we can identify patterns and trends that can help us improve our services and better meet our patients' needs.
But AI isn't just useful in our practice - it can also help us with our marketing efforts. By analyzing data on our website traffic, social media engagement, and other metrics, AI algorithms can help us better understand our target audience and tailor our marketing messages to their needs and preferences.
For example, AI can help us identify which types of content are most popular among our audience, which keywords and phrases are driving the most traffic to our website, and which social media platforms are most effective at reaching our target audience. By using this information to refine our marketing strategies, we can attract more patients to our practice and build stronger relationships with them over time.
Of course, as with any new technology, there are also some potential drawbacks and risks to using AI in our practice and marketing. For example, there may be concerns about patient privacy and data security, as well as the potential for biases or errors in the algorithms used to analyze patient data.
That's why it's important for us as dental professionals to approach AI with caution and to use it responsibly and ethically. We should be transparent with our patients about how we're using their data and ensure that we're following best practices for data security and privacy protection.
In summary, AI has a lot of potential to help us in our practice and our marketing efforts. By using AI tools and algorithms to analyze patient data, automate routine tasks, and tailor our marketing messages to our target audience, we can improve patient outcomes, attract more patients to our practice, and build stronger relationships with them over time. But we must also be mindful of the potential risks and take steps to use AI responsibly and ethically.
