The VR-Haptic Thinkers Consortium, initiated by the VR-Haptic Thinkers at the Institute of Dentistry, UEF, aims to accelerate the understanding of the role of VR-haptics in supplementing dental training. By gathering comprehensive global data resources, exploring high-throughput technologies, fostering new scientific collaborations, and facilitating hypothesis-driven educational research, we hope to empower the dental education and research community as well as improve oral health care for the benefit of patients. The consortium has collaborators and meetup attendees from all around the world. In the coming years, study resources will be generated by the VR-Haptic Thinkers projects via questionnaires, studies on preclinical, clinical, and postgraduate VR-haptic training, and analyses on VR-haptic software tools. The integrated data and curation by the VR-Haptic Thinkers will offer flexible and intuitive ways to interact with the data. Simultaneously, the datasets and our other activity will offer unique opportunities for new collaborations and training for dental educators and researchers coming into the field of VR-haptics-supported education.
