Context: This is a novel preclinical endodontic model “Vasundhara's model for elementary endodontic training,” featuring easy and convenient way for enhancing the skills of elementary endodontic procedures, simulating the clinical situation for endodontic teaching purposes. This article highlights the need, steps of fabrication of the model, and usage of the same for the universal benefit of the learners of endodontic techniques. Aims: The aim is to describe the design and usage of a novel preclinical endodontic model which is simple, convenient, easy to fabricate, and cost-effective. Settings and Design: Extracted teeth were selected and a pan radiograph was taken. Alginate was poured into metal jaws, followed by embedding of the teeth. Dental stone was then coated over the alginate. This assembly was then screwed to phantom head. A wire was attached to phantom head contacting the alginate for completing the circuit, forming an arc to which lip clip of apex locator could be attached. Conclusions: This novel cost-effective model for practicing preclinical endodontic techniques is simple, easy to design, and is a step forward toward mastering endodontic techniques.
