Dental Robotics represent a groundbreaking technological frontier with the potential to disrupt traditional paradigms in oral healthcare. This abstract explores the transformative impact of robotic applications in dentistry, focussing on precision, reproducibility, and reliability. A comprehensive search was conducted on the PubMed database, Dental and Oral Science, and CINAHL to identify pertinent studies exploring the implications of robotics in dentistry. Studies incorporated in this analysis highlighted the significance of broadening the research scope beyond implantology. This review underscores the importance of integrating robotic dentistry into educational frameworks and advancing technological preparedness. As we navigate these challenges, the abstract underscores the pivotal role of robotic dentistry in shaping the future of oral healthcare. Robotic dentistry promises transformative advancements in oral healthcare with precision and reliability. Challenges like limited system availability and expertise highlight the need for increased dentist-engineer collaboration. Diversifying research, emphasizing non-invasive technologies, and integrating robotic dentistry into education are crucial for wider acceptance. Public awareness and regulatory clarity are pivotal for seamless integration, unlocking the vast potential of robotic technologies in the future of dental care.
