Abstract

There is a growing demand for dentists in the developing world coupled with the global need for dentists to update their knowledge and skills driven by the incessant development of improved cures and procedures. We discuss how this demand can be met by the refinement of online teaching frameworks based on learning objects supported by sophisticated ICT technologies for the discovery of these objects and their aggregation into customised and personalised modules and courses. For dental training the acquisition of manual surgical skills is essential and this training can be provided by virtual reality systems interfaced with haptics devices. We review the configuration of current haptics based systems for dental training as well as systems that are currently under development, and then propose a novel augmented reality system that more closely mimics typical dentist-patient interaction. Finally we discuss how haptics based systems can fit into the overarching learning objects framework.
