During the bench test I explained the eye-protection policy at
our school. It is a good investment to purchase a good
fitting pair of eyeglasses (protective lenses). I recommend also
that they be scratch resistant lenses.
It is our policy that student’s working with rotary
instruments in the clinic or lab use eye protection. This
applies to those students who wear prescription lenses as well as
those who have 20/20 vision.
Dental loupes with a 2.5x magnification is
“mandated” for direct and indirect restorative
work. Having them at the start of our program will enhance
your progress. (3x magnification is not acceptable in the
restorative clinic as it hinders peripheral vision.)
Protective eyeglasses and Dental Loupe cost is not
included in the program fees.
I am sending you various loupe vendor’s
information. Please contact them . Some vendors are
able to make arrangements to meet you at your home cities ex. Los
Angeles, N.Y, etc.
Canadian residents please connect by e-mail or phone.
Loupes vendors will be at the first day of IDP Orientation
(5/21) to measure and place orders so you will have them on time.
