A Controlled Evaluation of Computer Assisted Training Simulations in Geriatric Dentistry.
Mulligan, Roseann; Wood, Gary J.
Journal of Dental Education, v57 n1 p16-24 Jan 1993
A study compared effects of two methods of teaching geriatric dentistry: traditional approach based on readings, and computer-assisted simulation of patient interaction and clinical decision making. Although subjects (n=20) showed no significant differences by treatment, computer-trained students had statistically nonsignificant higher performance on all variables and were more positive.
