Social distancing requirements inspired faculty to update the second-year course where students practice placing artificial teeth in the mouth.
Traditionally, the Simulation Removable and Implant Prosthodontics course is taught in a lab using wax models, but in response to COVID-19, NYU Dentistry began to teaching it remotely. A team of NYU faculty worked with Dentca's free, web-based software to create an entirely new curriculum, which has met or exceeded the outcomes of the traditional method. The department is now considering permanently converting this coursework to the digital platform.
