DentSim offers cavity prep courses for dental students

Image Navigation is offering courses on cavity preparation and cutting skills for dental students at its DentSim Lab in New York City over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The dental student skills practice center offers dental students simulation technology to practice operative skills with a mannequin and computer-assisted feedback.

The upcoming two-hour minicourses enable students to practice cavity preparation at their pace and experience level with on-screen feedback using the DentSim Advanced Dental Skills Simulator to enhance their psychomotor skills.

The courses use visualization technology to assess long-axis and handpiece positioning, see a magnified buccal view of the tooth, start prep in long axis, and determine previously undetected errors. Students can practice drilling to depth and assessing long axis, wall angles, outline shape and centralization, retention, and more.

The courses are offered on November 27 and 29, as well as December 1. For more information, visit the DentSim website. The website also features videos of students using the DentSim system.
