Regardless the importance of maxillofacial palpation, any practical training for dental patient has been in the dental education in Japan. This study aims to provide a virtual training environment of maxillofacial palpation to dental students, where the palpation training for virtual patient can be repeated without any risks and costs. In this paper, we design and construct a virtual cephalic model based on a linear finite element, which reacts visually and dynamically against the operation of a haptic interface. Our experimental results show that our proposal system achieves a real-time palpation simulation. Finally, we will discuss about the validation results with a coauthor dentist.
