Objective: The dental simulator is very important for dental education at the stage of preclinical education. Training with dental simulators is expected to provide easy adaptation for students to work on patients in professional education in hospitals.
Methods: Make of the body and phantom head simulator, maxilla and mandible typodonts, lamp arms, instrument table arms, and box. Use other components hight speed, low speed, tree way syringe, valve handle, control valve, pressure valve, integral valve, connectors, air pressure matter, and power window.
Results: Vertical direction movement on the instrument table arms and arms of the operating lamp made from Spring Shock-Breaker. LED lamps as illumination are made of iron plate frame; instrument box and body made from a mixture of resin and fiber; phantom head simulator made from a mixture of resin and ceramic adhesive consists of typodont with teeth fixed with glass glue, resin teeth, and room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone gingiva can be removed, articulators in place of typodont, part maxilla of typodont is fixed on horizontal plate. Movement of head simulator forward - down and slope of the body simulator is controlled by power window.
Conclusions: The dental simulator works well as a learning tool for dental students and designed to follow the principles of dental unit technology.

A survey was conducted in Saveetha dental college among undergraduate students.This study aims to assist with understanding the procedure of mounting models in a semi adjustable articulator which takes place most often in dental laboratory following on from a facebow recording and intra-occlusal records being made.The bite fork will be carefully removed from any packing and a check will be made that the maxillary model to be mounted into the articulator sits in bite registration material in a stable manner. Most commonly semi-adjustable articulator sits in the condylar guidance angle and Bennett angle that can be adjusted.A cross section survey was initiated in the students of saveetha dental college, Tamil Nadu about the advantages of using semi adjustable articulators. Nearly 100 people responded that the survey data has been collected and plotted as a graph. Data has been collected with the help of SPSS software and data has been analysed.100 people responded to the survey only limited people option has been collected.In our survey we found that the UG students are having moderate knowledge on advantages of using semi adjustable articulators.
