School Services

Learn more about the services provided by Promethean Dental Systems to Dental Schools and Hygiene Programs to support the implementation, training and integration of the Simodont and Digital Technology to deliver simulated repetitions and workflows that evolve dental education.

Promethean Dental Systems evolves dental education for schools by integrating the Simodont into school admissions, simulation lab and learning curriculum.  Our goal is to offer a new mode of learning offers self-taught learning,  grades automatically and objectively, integrates with other modes of learning for simulated learning and provides analytic insights on performance and ability.

School-Simodonts

Self-Taught Student Remediation

The Simodont Dental Trainer is an integral part of Promethean Dental Systems' simulation toolbox. The Simodont has been sold for years as a skill building tool for dental students. As such, it provides another mode of learning for Dental Schools. However, one of its biggest differentiators is self-taught student remediation. Remediation costs dental schools millions each year in faculty overtime and variable expenses. With the Simodont, faculty can assign remediation and monitor student progress through analytic dashboards.  The Simodont provides a cost effective and objectively graded means of remediation for students who need extra development time, saving the Dental School both time and money.

Student Repetition Boosting

Another training approach, provided only by the Simodont is Repetition Boosting. The pandemic created a gap in the ability to teach dental students due to clinic closure. This produced D4s that for the first time had less than 5 reps on procedures, prior to graduating. The Simodont is a virtual reality and haptic dental training simulator. The Simodont allows students to perform patient-like procedures with high dental fidelity in a self-teaching mode of learning. This unique offering can only be provided by the Simodont, allowing students to rapidly perform repetitions by simulating patient procedures over and over to boost repetitions and lower clinical failure. Repetitions can be completed in less than half the time and easily reset and completed again, just like a video game, helping students get as many reps as possible before graduating.

Product-Innovation

Idea Generation and Product Innovation

The Simodont Dental Trainer has been evaluated by many dental educators and examiners since it was released to the market. However, previous evaluations could have been very different from the Simodont Dental Trainer of today. Nissin, Kilgore, and Promethean Dental Systems are collaborating every day on new innovations for the Simodont Dental Trainer, including new case procedures, new instruments, improved haptics, new assessments, and performance analytics.
