dc.description.abstract Even though tooth extraction is one of the common surgical procedures in the dental field, it needs an extensive knowledge and practical experiences when handling the dental extraction equipment such as dental extraction forceps. Otherwise, it will be more complex or even in a worse case as it may cause damages to patients’ mouth area. Hence, it is very important to have a sound knowledge of the instruments to be used, especially on extraction forceps. So, the knowledge of extraction forceps should be disseminated properly. After identifying this need, as a first stage, we gathered the information regarding the dental extraction forceps from the experts in the field. Then we started developing ontology as a second stage. Protégé OWL Ontology Editor 5.1 was used for this purpose. Finally, the developed ontology was evaluated in two folds; by using inbuilt tools and by ontology experts as an iterative approach. We strongly believe that our novel approach on dental extraction forceps ontology can support the dental students, dentists as well as their assistants to improve the knowledge and helpful in learning practices. Our next step is to model the ontology for whole extraction process and to develop a knowledge management system portal on dental extraction forceps. en_US
