Many of the top dental schools around the world have already adopted DentSim to help train their students. View full list here.

Students are able to pull up their older sessions and review them to see if they make the same mistakes over and over again and how they are improving.

Dr. Laura Darnell

I need to start perpendicular to the occlusal table which is hard to see on the typodont but can be seen really nice on DentSim.

DentSim Student

I would guess that students can learn in two hours what used to take six hours on benchtop. They develop the skill to learn operative dentistry.

Dr. Frank Robertello

It is important to build exactly this visual image in the students minds. The DentSim is very suiting for this purpose, because it visualizes the target cavity design compared to the actual cavity preparation by the student.
