Introduction:
The acquisition of basic skills to make a correct diagnosis in patients is a fundamental aspect in the formation of any dentist professional. Orthodontics plaster model analysis is one of the most important parts in the diagnosis of dental malocclusions in orthodontics. It would be desirable for Dentistry students, especially orthodontists, to be able to analyze study models and do a good treatment plan.

Objectives:
Firstly, to establish innovative teaching methodologies to improve the teaching/learning system for orthodontics models in Practicum I through the virtual platform of the Virtual Campus and online learning environments. Secondly, to evaluate this new learning method in order to see the improvement in knowledge acquisition.

Material and methods:
Computers connected with campus virtual were used to analyze dental malocclusion in the three planes of space, comparing them with traditional teaching.

Results:
Students could perform the analysis of orthodontics plaster models digitally using new three-dimensional animations.

Conclusions:
Three-dimensional animations make teaching and learning easier for our students. We feel that students can improve their diagnose and treatment plan with three-dimensional animations. Students and teachers assessed the new teaching tools positively.
