Expertly engineered technology to transform your undergraduate experience
Dental loupes are designed to improve your clinical performance by enabling you to see detail with precision. At dental school, whilst you're learning hand skills and the techniques of operative dentistry it's important to visualise exactly where you could improve. The earlier in your career you are able to identify mistakes, the quicker you will learn from and avoid them in the future. If you can't see the ledge on your prep margins, it's very hard to know if you've smoothed it.
The other, but equally important aspect of dental loupes, is improved ergonomics. It's absolutely critical to a long, injury free career, to work in a position of musculoskeletal harmony. This position is driven by the working distance of your loupes (prevents back pain), declination angle of your telescopes (prevents cervical strain), and the optical characteristics of the telescope assembly (determines ease of use and positional flexibility).
The most important angle in your loupes is your cervical tilt - the actual telescope declination is completely unique to your measurements and often this is overlooked by the majority of companies.
High declination angle to avoid cervical strain.
Lower declination angle to avoid ocular fatigue.
Dental students tend to start with 2.8x loupes (many brands refer to these as 3.0x for simplicity). This is a great introductory magnification due to the large field of view (how many teeth are visible) and great depth of focus (what vertical height stays in focus). These optical factors determine how easy the loupes are to use in a range of different clinical environments, nurses, and patients. A wider field of view makes it easier for your assistant to pass you instruments.
It also helps you to align fast and slow hand pieces at the correct angles for treatment. A large depth of focus allows you to treat a greater variety of patients and gives you some flexibility of movement which is imperative in the early years of your career.
Loupes should not blur at the edges. The blurring leads to strain and headaches
The lower the weight the more comfortable they will be to wear all day for all of your procedures.
Loupes should be tailored properly to ensure your optimal posture and optical characteristics.

We partnered up with UK Universities to support dental students become the best possible dentists in the world.
Bryant Dental was started by a dental student back in 2015. It was shortly joined by further dentists and dental students to fuel its expansion into one of the world's foremost dental manufacturers and suppliers. This focus on dental from the very start has ensured products are tailored specifically for the profession. We know better than anyone the long-term benefits loupes have on our careers and health because we're dentists ourselves.
