DenTeach™ is a sophisticated technology that is used to achieve high precision, haptic-enabled, instructor-oriented training

DenTeach™ utilizes its advanced hardware to enhance the transfer of knowledge from instructor to student



The DenTeach™ student workstation comes with our own specially designed drill that synchronizes with the forces and vibrations of the instructor's drill, allowing for students to experience exactly what the instructor was doing through visual, audio, feel, and posture cues.

360° View

DenTeach™ will allow students to get a 360-degree view of the instructor's actions using 4 separate integrated cameras letting students always see the actions of the instructor.

The Compact Design

Allows students to take their DenTeach™ workstations home with them and increasing the convenience of finding time to practice different real-world scenarios.
