DSE Expert

Dental Simulation Units

Turn students into experts

As the successor to the most successful dental simulation unit of its kind, the DSE Expert is the perfect training tool for universities and advanced training colleges. The treatment workstation includes electronically controlled patient positioning, integrated water supply and suction, generous storage spaces and ergonomically adjustable dentist and assistant elements with individually selectable instrumentation. In addition, the patient simulator with teeth, mandibular joint, head and upper body is for students easily accessible integrated in the unit and can be folded away to save space.


Some of the benefits include

  • Electrical positioning of the patient simulator for the most realistic training conditions ever
  • Perfect ergonomics through separate height adjustment of the dentist and assistant element
  • Flexible instrumentation and modular structure: endodontic function, integrated water supply and disposal as well as other functions available as options
  • Compact and clinical design with larger individual storage space for students
  • Integrated suction motor with low air consumption
  • Precise handling in accordance with high quality standards
  • Solid design using high-quality materials
  • Maximum functional safety with all components tested 100%



Built to meet your requirements: DSE Expert, freely configurable and expandable

There is not just one DSE Expert, but rather: your DSE Expert. Thanks to its modular structure, it can be used as an individual device as well as in complete training station groups. It can be operated with air or electric-powered instruments and expanded to cover root canal treatments with endodontics software at any time, even after purchase.

Because each university is different: freely configurable media supply


1. Suction

The integrated stand-alone wet suction device for saliva extraction and spray mist suction features low air consumption with continuously strong suction power. The discharge container (1 l) with integrated overflow protection, transport handle and self-sealing lock is easily accessible. Alternatively, the unit can also be connected to a central wet or dry suction device. In case of a dry suction, the waste water tank is used as a separator.


2. Water supply

Water is supplied via an integrated stand-alone unit with a pressure regulator, overflow protection and a tested, easily accessible pressurised water bottle (max. 1.3 l) which
also opens under pressure thanks to auto-ventilation. There is an option for manual permanent and intensive germ reduction by adding KaVo Oxygenal 6 for protection against germs. Alternatively, the unit can be connected to the building’s central water supply.


Selection from frame to foot control: a convenient option for students and service

As a mobile simulation unit on four sturdy castors, the DSE Expert can be positioned freely and then stably fixed in the optimum treatment position using the pneumatic brake. The frame itself can be configured with intermediate shelves, doors or metal drawers.



Student areas

  • Two lockable storage areas for students
  • Comfortably accessible from the side
  • Space for a jaw simulator or articulator and tray with instruments


Service areas

  • Maintenance-friendly structure, only accessible with tools
  • Above the storage spaces: media and electronics
  • Lower area: suction motor, transformer and further installations



Foot control

Both versions with hoses routed centrally at the front of the device, suitable for left and right-handed users.


Type A: The continuously variable speed control is operated using a comfortable right/left movement of the pedal. There are also foot keys for switching the spray water or
the blow air on/off and for activating/deactivating the motor counter-clockwise operation. The patient simulator position can also be adjusted using the foot control.

Type C: The spray water is switched on/off using a folding valve, and the blow air is switched on/off via a pressure valve. The instrument’s start/stop function is conveniently
controlled via the disc gas pedal.


Always in the perfect position: Options for using the DSE Expert

The options for using the KaVo DSE Expert are unlimited. It can be combined as a standalone feature or combined with a technician’s workstation. The extremely compact device can be easily stationed under the technician’s workstation, thereby giving the student maximum legroom.


Flexible arrangements

Whether arranged in an island of 2, 4, individual or double rows, the DSE Expert can save space in any training room to suit the relevant training concept.


Realistic prior planning included

The facilities in the training area, including the technical equipment and furniture, are optimised through our space and installation planning and are also displayed
realistically. This provides a realistic simulation of your clinic’s specific features.

Ergonomics is a matter of adjustment: individual customisation of the DSE Expert


Conversion from right to left

Left-handed users can convert the dentist and assistant element to a correct and ergonomic side for them in just a few seconds and without requiring tools. Both elements are height-adjustable independently of each other from a lowest position of 690 mm to a highest position of 840 mm.




Positioning of the patient simulator

Select one out of three individual pre-programmed positions which is accessed via an electronic synchronous mechanism — just as with a treatment unit. Alternatively, the user can move the patient simulator to the required treatment position by pressing a button on the dentist element.




Adjusting the patient simulator

In order for both small as well as large students to be able to take up an ergonomic treatment position, the simulator has a wide range of options for adjusting the height and tilt. Vertikale Höhenverstellung

  • Lowest height to incisal edge: 700 mm
  • Maximum height to incisal edge: 950 mm
  • Angle adjustment: from -10° to +90°



Adjusting the patient’s head

The patient’s head can be positioned freely for flexible readjustment of a wide range of treatment options

  • up to approx. 25° nodding movement forwards
  • up to approx. 40° nodding movement backwards
  • up to approx. 20° tilt left and right


Realistic, even more realistic, DSE Expert. Options with the patient simulator


Jaw simulators

The DSE Expert can be combined freely with all KaVo jaw simulators. The G20 and G40/J/JM Standard jaw simulator or the individually adjustable G50/J/JM can be enhanced with the lifelike KaVo tooth models if required.

More information about Jaw simulators.



Face masks

Depending on the level and objective of the training, the face mask with the large mouth opening (standard for beginners), the one with the small mouth opening (simulating children or older patients) or the one with an adapter for the spray mist suction (for two-handed treatment) can be fitted in a matter of seconds.


Face bows

The KaVo patient simulator has all of the important reference points and levels for training with the face bow (bipupilar line, infraorbital point, sub-nasal anterior, external ear canal). This way the DSE Expert allows work to take place in exactly the same way as on a real patient with the face bow.

More information about face bows.

The future is digital. DSE Expert is ready for it

The future belongs to anyone who is able to identify the next big step and dares to take it. Digitalisation is increasingly making its way into modern dentistry. KaVo also provides innovative systems for tutors who want to provide efficient teaching and familiarise students with new technologies right from the start. Efficient teaching resources save tutors’ time and optimise the chances of students being successful in their learning.


KaVo Dental Teacher

The system for rapid and objective evaluation of preparations gives tutors three software modules for effective teaching of complex topics.

  • Prep validation: The quickest method for evaluating student preparations. Objective, automatic, computer-assisted.
  • Virtual articulation: With a display of the interplay between the areas of tooth morphology with movements, students are able to understand the principles of occlusion, articulation and functional jaw movements much more quickly.
  • Virtual growth: Module for growing dental prostheses in pre-clinic for treating patients. Optimised for learning CAD/CAM technology from the start of the course.

More information about KaVo Dental Teacher.
