Breakaway and Medical College of Georgia will be releasing a beta version of its ‘Virtual Dental Implant Training Simulation’ software to about 15,000 dental students at 25 universities worldwide.

Each round of the simulation game begins with a virtual intake session. The dentists-in-training will fail at the game if they fail to sufficiently question the patient in play. Not to be outdone by less serious games, VDIT players who make the wrong choices will cause the virtual gums explode in blood. Stats for Dentists as Gamers Trending: Older & Average
