This research article explores the integration of 3D printing and augmented reality (AR) into oral anatomy education to enhance students' learning experiences and outcomes. Traditional teaching methods in oral anatomy, such as cadaver demonstrations, face challenges due to limited space and cadaver access. Advancements in technology, such as AR, offer promising solutions to overcome these limitations.
The study includes 26 dental students, employs a crossover design, and compares the effectiveness of 3D printing and augmented reality education with video demonstrations. After each specific anatomic topic, online questionnaires assessed students' attitudes and motivation. Learning objectives were also evaluated by scoring small reflections on these topics.
The results indicate that integrating 3D printing and AR increases student attitudes, motivation, and learning objectives when transitioning from video education. However, the shift from 3D and AR education to video education yields insignificant differences. Moreover, students in the 3D and AR education groups achieved higher scores for the oral anatomy lecture than the video education group, and their scores are comparable to those of the cadaver education group. Furthermore, incorporating 3D printing and augmented reality increases class participation and reactivity.
In conclusion, integrating 3D printing and augmented reality into oral anatomy education offers a viable solution to overcome space and cadaver access limitations. These innovative teaching methods enhance student engagement, motivation, learning outcomes, and class participation.
