Abstract : Simulation-based learning has been proposed to improve both clinical and practical reasoning skills. The purpose of this study was to evaluate students’ perceptions of two different simulation techniques in their dental pre-clinical teaching. A survey questionnaire was distributed to undergraduate students, which consisted of different statements regarding the two different simulation techniques. It consisted of 3 main domains: general questions, questions focused on integrated and simulated-based teaching methods, and open-ended questions. A total of 50 students with a gender distribution of 38% males and 62% of females responded to the questionnaire with a 100% response rate. Of these, 98% of students accepted that it was easy to work on the simulated models, while about 48% of them perceived that a combination of simulation and video demonstration was more suitable. 96% were more confident in performing the pulpotomy procedure, and 98% of the participants agreed that integrated teaching methodology would be more useful as compared to only the simulation method while preparing a stainless-steel crown. All the participants agreed on the future implementation of integrated simulation-based learning in adjunct with other teaching methodologies. Future follow-up studies with surveys are recommended to evaluate the complete effectiveness of these methods in dental preclinical training.
