Presenter: Elyakeem Kinstlinger, Marcom, DentSim v5 by Image Navigation
Dental students develop visualization skills, hand skills, and self-assessment skills through deliberate practice on the DentSim v5.
DentSim v5 is an augmented reality dental training simulator. While seated at a manikin and preparing a preparation on a plastic tooth, movement of the student’s handpiece and the typodont-tooth are optically tracked and analyzed in real-time on-screen. Instructors can point out errors to students so they understand what to correct and how to improve.
Students spend more time learning skills rather than covering up errors leading to higher quality learning and a faster learning curve.
The new DentSim v5 has a new lightweight handpiece, active tracking and a new camera with wider field of view.
