There have been numerous datasets, 3D models and simulations developed over the years however it is clear that there is a need to provide an anatomically accurate, flexible, user driven virtual training environment that can potentially offer significant advantages over traditional teaching methods, techniques and practices. The ability to virtually train dental trainees to navigate and interact in a repeatable format, before directly engaging with the patients can measurably reduce error rates… 
Development of a Haptic Training Simulation for the Administration of Dental Anaesthesia based upon Accurate Anatomical Data
TLDR
The workflow to develop an accurate anatomical model of the human head and neck is presented and a Virtual Reality-based application is introduced commissioned by NHS Education for Scotland to support the learning of the anatomy in a safe and repeatable manner.
The virtual reality simulator development for dental students training: a pilot study
TLDR
The development of a virtual reality simulator with immersion in VR scene for dentist office and simulation of tooth drilling, which has been piloted at the Faculty of Dentistry at the V. Vernadsky Crimean Federal University.
3D Technology Development and Dental Education: What Topics Are Best Suited for 3D Learning Resources?
TLDR
The aim of this study is to identify topics from the dental curricula that would benefit from having a 3D learning resource using an exploratory sequential design method, and revealed that detailed anatomy of the temporomandibular joint, dental anaesthesiology, dental clinical skills techniques, dental occlusion and mandibular functioning were top priorities.
The last decade in orthodontics: A scoping review of the hits, misses and the near misses!
TLDR
COS (Core Outcome Sets) are presented that could be a road map for evaluating currently employed developments as well as testing new ones in future and are found to be the most represented outcome assessment.

Development of a Dental Skills Training Simulator Using Virtual Reality and Haptic Device
TLDR
A virtual reality (VR) dental training system utilizing a haptic (force feedback) device, which generates three-dimensional surface model of the teeth from patient’s data and a realistic model of a dental handpiece with a cylindrical cutting burr.
Augmented reality haptics system for dental surgical skills training
TLDR
Preliminary results from an initial evaluation show that the system is a promising tool to supplement dental training and that there are advantages of the AR over the VR approach.
Development of a visio-haptic integrated dental training simulation system.
TLDR
The performance tests found that dentists have a strong motivation to use the visio-haptic dental training system and that in the aspects of usability, clarity, effectiveness, help/support provided, and satisfaction, the users' responses were above average.
Assessment of faculty perception of content validity of PerioSim, a haptic-3D virtual reality dental training simulator.
TLDR
This study suggests that the preliminary "evidence-of-concept" was successful and PerioSim may aid students in developing necessary dental tactile skills.
iDental: A Haptic-Based Dental Simulator and Its Preliminary User Evaluation
TLDR
It is found that penetration between tool and teeth or cheek will greatly decrease the fidelity of the simulation, therefore, it is necessary to utilize 6-DOF haptic device with both force and torque feedback in dental simulator, and accordingly it is needed to extend point-based rendering to 6- DoD haptic rendering of multiregion contacts.

TLDR
A comprehensive survey of virtual reality and haptics for dental surgery simulation and training for dentists and their typical systems is provided.
Simulation in dentistry and oral health
TLDR
Current simulation modalities for dental education and dental practice are described: the use of simulation to minimize patient harm and the useof simulation to improve operator’s performance.
Transfer of Manual Dexterity Skills Acquired on the Simodont, a Dental Haptic Trainer with a Virtual Environment, to Reality. A Pilot Study
TLDR
A simulator, Simodont, consisting of a force feedback robot arm connected to software in such a way that every movement of the arm is visualized on a screen, has been developed to replace the traditional lab conditions by a realistic virtual learning environment.
Haptics-based virtual reality periodontal training simulator
TLDR
The haptics-based virtual reality periodontal training simulator has been validated by a experiment conducted by the College of Dentistry at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) with faculty members and dental students, which demonstrates the scientific contribution and usefulness of the simulator.
Development of a multi-layered virtual tooth model for the haptic dental training system.
TLDR
