Sink Your Teeth into 3D Dentistry
with Kanagawa Dental University, Japan
Kanagawa Dental University is a leading Japanese dental university with more than 100 years of history. The university provides its students with a high-quality education by introducing cutting-edge digital medical devices and technologies while also offering a unique learning environment that allows students to work closely with dental technicians from Kanagawa Dental University Hospital, located right next to the university.
Seeking to introduce new technologies into their curriculum, Kanagawa Dental University was one of the first campuses in Japan to introduce the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition, a laptop capable of showing images in stereoscopic 3D. This technology enhances dental education and study by allowing data and information to be viewed in 3D so students and patients can more easily understand complicated concepts. By incorporating this device and stereoscopic 3D technology into its classes, the university allows students to make use of specialized 3D software to enhance their educational experience. ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition has also started to be implemented at Kanagawa Dental University Hospital, giving its doctors and dental technicians a chance to learn how stereoscopic 3D might enhance their profession in the future.
