Simulation Lab at ITS Dental College
ITS Dental College has a new advanced Hi-Tech simulation lab in Greater Noida for better understanding of Pre-clinical work for each and every student. The lab is used for a wide range of preclinical, advanced, and doctoral activities for graduate and post-graduate students.
The first year medical students mostly practice psychomotor abilities in dentistry on simulated dummy patients before executing these operations on real patients. They learn to develop a posture, position, and practise procedure that allows them to achieve occupational health and efficiency without jeopardising the work, the patient, or themselves. They learn to conduct dental treatments with high precision, quality, and accountability on lifelike manikins in virtual and actual practise situations.This way no real patient gets harmed or badly affected during the pre-clinical practices.
All of this is done at ITS Dental College cutting-edge clinical simulation facilities, which mimic the elements of a dental practise operatory, as well as the general practise clinics where patients are treated. Professional skills and habits learned in a realistic clinical simulation provide students confidence and competence when they apply them to patient care later. Students acquire psychomotor, clinical judgement, and professional communication skills that are necessary for providing quality patient care and safety through the intentional use of best practises in simulation teaching. Before entering patient clinics, students are exposed to all facets of dentistry by conducting treatments on dummies. This becomes an ideal interaction setting. The area has been divided into different workstations with one student operating on one. Each workstation has the necessary dental equipment for diagnosis, observation and treatment. They also have phantom heads with flowing water and air, allowing students to simulate patient care in a nonclinical context. As students practise preclinical technical processes crucial to developing requisite clinical skills, proper ergonomics, four-handed capabilities, adequate illumination, and thorough infection control measures are presented and periodically reviewed.
