DENTACT MODEL is a dental model that can be used for oral health education for blind or low vision persons. This model, on which we can freely change the number of teeth and tooth alignment, is useful to recognize own tooth shape and position for persons with visual impairments. We also designed this model to make it easy for people without visual impairment. This model can be used for oral health education such as learning brushing methods at dental clinics, schools and homes.
