About The Course:

A dental block procedure is another name for anesthetizing that particular area of the mouth that needs some dental procedure.

This VR simulation for Dental Block is designed to provide practitioners practice in performing a dental block with accuracy. With both training and assessment modes, learners can perform the procedure and assess themselves on their performance.  

Learning Objectives:
  • Identifying anatomical landmarks for inferior alveolar block correctly
  • Performing dental block using landmark technique accurately

Core Skills Training

Performing Dental Block

As a part of this Dental Block procedure, after performing hand sanitization the learner will dip cotton-tipped swabs in topical anesthetic. They will then apply the cotton tipped swab with anesthetic into the oropharynx into the retromandibular fossa and allow topical anesthetic to sit for enough time to take effect. After filling syringe with local anesthetic, the learner will palpate the retromolar fossa, place index finger externally over the ramus of the mandible and insert the needle gently until bone is felt.
All necessary affordances are provided to complete the procedure with efficiency.


With prompts, guidance and affordances learners are hand-held through the process to practice the procedure in a virtual environment with a virtual patient.  

  • Photorealistic virtual environment  
  • Physics-based interactions  
  • Detailed instructions  
  • Adequate affordances to assist in task completion 


Test acquired skills to perform the procedures from start to finish without prompts. An incorrect step will take the learner back to the start to start afresh.  

  • Live scoring  
  • Instant feedback  
  • Adequate affordances for efficient performance  
  • Time tracking to monitor activity completion
