Allowing dental students to explore the head and neck in XR

In this week’s MiXR Studios podcast, we talk with Hera Kim-Berman, a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry and Program Director of Graduate Orthodontics at the University of Michigan’s School of Dentistry. Hera has been one of the leading faculty at the University of Michigan to explore and push the boundaries of VR in teaching and learning. In our discussion, we talk about her work in bringing the Oculus Go headset to more than 100 first year dental students. We discuss her early work with the Emerging Technologies Group at the Duderstadt Center to experience what is possible and explore what these tools could do in her teaching.
