Hands-on practical experience in oral surgery is highly requested by dental students and faculty. For the purpose of training; a haptic enabled simulator for surgical extraction of wisdom teeth was designed. A prototype was implemented and evaluated with surgeons from Karolinska Institute as part of a user centered design approach.
