The coordination of using a dental drill in the user’s right hand and a dental mirror in their left is a difficult to master technique. Even dental professionals have a difficult time with the technique after a week or more absence (such as a vacation). Dental Madness focuses on this technique for two of the exercises.

Game Overview

Dental Madness teaches the following skills:

  1. Coordination of dental drill (right hand) and dental mirror (left hand)
  2. Memorization of Universal Teeth numbers
  3. Identifying gum health, if gum disease is present

The user is challenged with these tasks:

  1. Check three locations for gum disease
  2. Locate cavities
  3. Identify cavities location on the Universal Tooth Numbering Chart
  4. Drill instances of cavity decay

First and second year dental students, average of age of 24.

The player’s learning is measured by their performance in the exercises. The game informs them if their work/guesses are incorrect and they have the chance to try again to correctly indicate the gum pocket depths, for example. Player’s have to learn the proper numbering of teeth to truly grasp and perform the techniques of Dental Madness.
