Indiana dentist 1st in state to use robot

John Pawlus, DDS, of Pawlus Dental in Columbus, Ind., is the first dentist in the state to use the Yomi Robotic Dental System to perform dental implant surgery, The Republic reported Oct. 4.

The Yomi Robotic Dental System is the only FDA-cleared robot-assisted dental surgery system in the U.S.

Dr. Pawlus has been using the Yomi robot since June and has placed around 60 implants. He told The Republic that using the robot cuts procedure time by more than half.

The only other dental practice in Indiana using the Yomi robot is SmileCentric in Carmel, according to The Republic.
