Using The Mirror Is HARD
Performing dental procedures in reverse while looking through a mirror is one of the most difficulty skills to learn in dental school
Drawing on paper does NOT work
Clinical studies show that students who practice drawing/tracing on paper while through a mirror will get better at drawing on paper in reverse, but do not improve their ability to perform dental procedures with a mirror. Developing mirror skills in dentistry is based on muscle-memory. Any exercises must mimic the same orientation and visual reference points as real dental procedures.
The Jumpstart Mirror Trainer is the Best Tool For Developing Mirror Skills Before Starting Dental School
