La réalité virtuelle dans l’enseignement préclinique en Dentisterie Restauratrice : le simulateur haptique VirTeaSy Dental© est-il un outil discriminant et valide pour apprécier les performances des étudiants ?

Abstract : The acquisition of manual and sensitive dexterity is essential for the futur dentist student’s preclinical education. To meet this requirement, many companies created simulators combining virtual reality with a feedback haptic interface. If the tactile experiences provided by these simulators are similar to the clinical ones, we could expect haptic simulator discrimination between users from several clinical levels. The aim of this thesis was to assess the discriminating capacity of the VirTeaSy© haptic simulator between users from different experience levels. Fifty-six volunteers have been divided into groups based on their experience (non-dental, 2nd, 4th and 6th year dental students and young dentists) and have performed an exercise three times of class I cavity curetting and then have answered a questionnaire about their experience. About the percentage of target carious eliminated, significant differences have been shown between the 2nd and 4th year students and young dentists, but also between the non-dental and 2nd year students. These results suggest that this simulator would be discriminating but it has some limits. Literature seems to agree on the fact that haptic simulation would be a promising pedagogical tool for preclinical dental education, to be used as a complement to conventional teaching methods rather than to replace them.
