Sentient AI is one of the premier artificial intelligence technology firms in the world offering advanced AI platform and technology for the progressive companies looking to integrate AI technology with their business machinery. It has conclusively proven to help improve sales as well as provide customers with enhanced customer experience. As technology evolves with time, it only makes sense for the new age companies to expand their use of technology and integrate new AI-based technologies that can help improve their overall technological infrastructure. Sentient AI began its journey in the world of AI technology around 2007 and since then has grown to become a market leader in its field, offering its AI platform and technology to hundreds of e-commerce and offline companies across the globe.
One of the most critical uses of artificial intelligence technology is personalized merchandising. How would it feel to enter a shop that only contains products that are matched to your preferences and likes? Artificial intelligence allows the e-commerce companies to provide its customers with similar experience as it would help in showcasing to the customers, only what they want to see or would like seeing.
The technique behind this is that the e-commerce company would process data sets from each customer, including data from browsing history, previous orders, products watched, items selected, pages navigated, chosen categories, and more. These parameters are processed within fractions of the second to provide the browsing experience to the customers that would seem personalized to the customer. It would help the customers to find what they are looking for within seconds. It is a beneficial technology for the e-commerce companies that have thousands and millions of products.
Personalized merchandising through the AI technology also makes it easier for the companies to guide their customers to the new products, offers, and categories that would be of interest to the customers. As there are just so many things that the e-commerce companies are up at any given time, the use of AI technology helps in making the experience of the customers on the company’s mobile application as well as on any other devices, streamlined and seamless. Personalized merchandising through artificial intelligence creates a list of products for the customers as per their preference. Remember the “most popular” category when browsing through an e-commerce site? It has been sorted and organized as per your previous order history and shopping preferences as analyzed by the site’s AI platform, in most of the cases.
If you find yourself in Dr Akhill Reddy’s dentist office for a dental check-up, there’s a good chance you won’t be leaving with just a a clean mouth, you may find yourself leaving with a fine wine recommendation as well.
Dr Akhill Reddy is not only a dentist with the MB2 Dental Solutions team, but also spends much of his time drilling into his wine-tasting skills. And the two seem to overlap and compliment each other well. As a dental professional Dr Akhill Reddy looks for ways to make trips to the dental office affordable for all. He also likes to apply that same principle to wine-buying. A quality wine at an affordable price (but don’t expect to rinse with a cabernet sauvignon or pinot grigio – water is still the mainstay).
But it’s not only Dr Akhill Reddy’s sense and knowledge of what makes a good wine “good”, but he also has a sense of fashion. He has contributed to the the site www.TheBroTalk helping medical professionals dress their best knowing that the white coat is unavoidable yet it alone doesn’t have the final statement in how you look. form khakis and dark jeans to the coordinating dress shirt and when to wear a tie he knows that how a medical professional dresses under the white coat can make a bold statement as well.
However with a fashion sense and wine knowledge, Dr Akhill Reddy’s first calling is dentistry. He knows that continuing education is a necessity to being at the front of one’s field and is constantly reading to keep up on the latest breakthroughs – for both himself as a dentist and for the patient experience. It’s one of the reasons he is a part of the MB2 Dental Solution team. A team that takes care of the non-medical aspects so he can focus on what matter’s most – your experience. The experience of coming-in and being welcomed into his office, the experience of the appointment itself, and the experience of a check-up well done, making sure you will look forward to your next return, and next, and next.

Dr. Chris Villanueva is one of the respected individuals in the dentistry world. Many people know him because of his numerous accomplishments in the competitive department. Several years ago, the successful dentist decided to establish a company known as MB2 Dental. The businessman always had a vision of making the department better for both the corporate and private practitioners. Villanueva had already worked in both sectors of the equation, and this means that he had the direct knowledge needed to furnish the dental world without interfering with the integrity of the competitive department.
After working as a dentist for very many years, Chris Villanueva thought that it would be crucial to offer dental practitioners to get the specialized assistance without any strings attached. Since it was founded, the dental practice has focused mainly on supporting physicians. At the moment, the company is managing doctors in more than seventy locations in the six states. The firm has five hundred and thirty-three employees who work around the clock to ensure that the doctors achieve their objectives. The leadership of the institution is also close knit, and it plays a fundamental role in the success of the company.
Most of the ordinary dental management networks in the United States operate just like the traditional practices. They are mostly uninspired and drab. However, Villanueva has introduced a new model of activities that is significantly changing the whole industry. The company focuses more on the doctors than making huge profits. The model that is used by the private dental practice has facilitated the changes in the enterprise.
When establishing the company, Chris Villanueva was interested in having a dentist owned institution that would specialize in offering personal growth, autonomy and at the end having fun together. In the past, most doctors did not have enough time to concentrate on their patients. This is because most of them had to attend to the non-clinical matters of the practice. The doctors affiliated with the dental practice now have enough time to treat their patients. The patients, on the other hand, are given the best services at affordable prices.
MB2 Dental has been successful because of several reasons. First of all, the founder of the company, Chris Villanueva has a lot of expertise in the dental world. The experience has helped the management of the company to always be on top. The employees are also highly experienced in whatever they do, and this explains why they have taken the firm to greater heights.
