Dr Romik Vadhvana was working as a Dental office service coordinator before he got his Canadian Dental license. He realized that many verbal communications are happening in the Dental clinic that may look unprofessional, such as Hygienist comes to the room and interrupt DDS just to let the Dentist know that they are ready for a check. In that case, it becomes an external distraction for the patient as well as a Dentist. Also, Dentists depend on an assistant to remind them who is waiting for him/her and in which room, which becomes hectic and stressful from the Assistant side because they already have a lot on their plate.
This is just one example among many more in which we can make the communication nonverbal by just alerting the Dentist somehow. There are nonverbal communication systems available, such as light-based, buzzer-based, which create a sound and become an interruption itself, so he decided to make a voiceless still a very effective indirect way of the communication system. He chose to use a smartwatch and so that staff can alert anyone by just sending the vibe or text.
