Queen Mary University of London receives 22 Simodont dental trainers
19 JULY 2022
Last week, 22 Simodont dental trainers were delivered and installed by our Simodont team at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). More Simodonts are planned to be installed in the second half of this year as part of a contract that includes multi-year warranty, support and content development.
QMUL is currently preparing for an ambitious growth of student numbers and is increasingly making use of digital technologies for student education. Simodont will offer them the required additional training capacity and flexibility, but it will also facilitate more advanced training capabilities, for example by connecting with digital dentistry workflows.
The Simodont team and Queen Mary University worked closely together to complete the installation and kick-off training process in only 2 days.
We look forward to continue to support Queen Mary University with embedding Simodont into their education.
Testimonial from Promethean Dental Systems by Dr. Callan
15 JUNE 2021
“Promethean Dental Systems has devised an entire curriculum centered around the inclusion of the Simodont Dental Trainer. We believe that the Simodont Dental Trainer represents a major paradigm shift in dental education. The ability to provide the student with self-instructional exercises specifically designed for each segment of the dental life cycle is something that was previously unobtainable. The life-like touch and feel of the handpiece combined with the excellent visual presentation is unsurpassed in the industry.
Each exercise provides immediate, objective feedback to the student, allowing for more rapid improvement of hand-skills and thus an earlier introduction to clinical dentistry. Not only is this helpful to the student, it also provides the opportunity for the instructor to concentrate more on teaching and less on grading.
We are all aware of the fact that any technology is only as good as the individuals providing the support for it. The Simodont Team from Nissin, as well as the owners and staff of Kilgore International have provided the highest level of support that we have experienced in our entire professional careers. They are timely and courteous, and eager to entertain any suggestions that may help to improve and advance their product. It is professionally rewarding to be part of the advancement of dental education, and it is exciting to envision just where this might lead in the future.”

“The Simodont team has been very helpful in supporting the development of our haptic teaching material on the Simodont trainers. Our students gain validated simulated clinical experience far earlier in the course than was previously possible and they love the exercises. The possibilities for exploiting the high haptics for a variety of clinical simulations in the future are very exciting.”
Dr. A Keelings - University of Leeds
“By tracking drill time and net score for repeated manual dexterity exercises, we were able to show evidence that practicing hand skills improves performance. Our first year students were able to practice indirect vision earlier than ever in de curriculum. Neither of these would have been practical without Simodont.”
