Artificial intelligence has a long history of use across a wide range of professions, but its integration into everyday activities is comparatively recent. Prioritising application in government and educational institutions, artificial intelligence (AI) was later applied in dentistry and healthcare as technological advancements allowed. The current study intends to provide a succinct perspective on current research and will be the direction for future studies in addition to doing a comprehensive review of artificial intelligence as a diagnostic tool in community dentistry and medicine. Based on a comprehensive assessment of the literature, this study gathers, synthesises, and evaluates data. Thirty-five research articles on artificial intelligence, medicine, and community dentistry were selected from seven databases between 2013 and 2023, adhering to a predetermined review methodology. 2016 has seen an increase in the trends in the articles. The majority of studies have looked at the use of AI and diagnostic tools in community dentistry and medicine. This research context has been largely misunderstood. The results of the data extraction indicate that the terms "software," "precision medicine," "diagnostic tool," and "artificial intelligence" are most frequently found in the literature individually. Combining all these data factors is still a step, although one that is less iterative. As such, the results of this review can help scholars apply and improve artificial intelligence as a diagnostic tool more successfully.
