Training invasive medical procedures at the pre-clinical development is a considerable educational challenge.

Such ascertainment motivated the development of the virtual environment VIDA Odonto, which resorts to VR technologies, realistic modeling of patient and tridimensional immersive interaction. The developed prototype was tested and evaluated by professionals with clinical experience and beginners, demonstrating its viability to be a relevant educational resource in dentistry courses.
