A One-of-a-kind dental training lab launched by Aga Khan University, Pakistan

A one-of-a-kind, high-fidelity dental simulation lab that promises a safer and more effective way to educate dental professionals and students was inaugurated at the Aga Khan University (AKU) on August 30, 2017.

At AKU’s newly launched facility, 17 state-of-the-art ‘phantom heads’ – patient mannequins – are available, specially designed to mimic the challenges of a real-life clinical environment. Each mannequin contains the full range of dental instruments, tools such as air and water suction, and computer-based feedback facilities needed to help students and practicing dentists improve their skills.
