During the bench test I explained the eye-protection policy at
our school. It is a wise investment to purchase a good
fitting pair of eyeglasses (protective lenses). I also recommend
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 arenot included in the Iinternational dentists program
Below you will findinformation for our two loupe vendors.
Please contact them directly. Both vendors will be here your first
day (May 21, 2018). You can order them now and have them ready for
fitting on the first day if you choose.
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.
