Today, information and communication technologies (ICTs) have marked a significant change in the education and preparation of society. In this sense, several academic fields implement virtual tools that help to simulate real situations, preparing students in a better way. From a dental point of view, future professionals can be trained without compromising the health and safety of others. For this reason, this work proposes the development of a virtual platform for the creation and management of dental cases focused on postgraduate academia. With the help of learning resources such as x-rays, medical records, basic exams and a real patient's background, a specialist can create a case that will be presented to a student, in conjunction with a tutor, for resolution. Among the results obtained, it is possible to show the efficiency of this method of learning, based on the opinions of the students.
