Simodont Dental Trainer Introduction

Testimonials

  • “The Simodont team has been very helpful in supporting the development of our haptic teaching material on the Simodont trainers. Our students gain validated simulated clinical experience far earlier in the course than was previously possible and they love the exercises. The possibilities for exploiting the high quality haptics for a variety of clinical simulations in the future are very exciting.”

    Dr. A. Keeling,
    University of Leeds
  • “By tracking drill time and net score for repeated manual dexterity exercises, we were able to show evidence that practicing hand skills improves performance. Our first year students were able to practice indirect vision earlier than ever in the curriculum. Neither of these would have been practical without Simodont.”
