One important aspect of instrument handling in dental training is the ability to use the instrument (such as the dental handpiece) to effectively, yet safely, accomplish the dental goal. There are several skills that should be understood and learned by students. Most importantly, a student should know how to hold the dental handpiece, comprehend how fast the drill should rotate, perceive the level of vibration produced by the handpiece during the performance of a dental task and receive adequate alerts once a task is performed improperly. The DenTeach portable platform consists of a DenTeach-Student, DenTeach-Instructor, advanced wireless networking technology, and cloud-based data storage and retrieval, and is developed for use in teaching, shadowing, and practice modes. DenTeach-Instructor, a desktop application - that is part of the DenTeach family - complements traditional methods and creates a real-life traditional teaching-learning experience by synchronizing an instructor and a student with real-time video, audio, feeling and patient’s posture. The data storage system stores visual, audio, feeling, and posture data as well as KPIs.
