Student Loupes FAQs

Do I need loupes as a dental student?

Dental loupes not only improve your clinical work by providing a better view of what you’re doing, but they also allow you to maintain a correct and comfortable posture. When we were students, we all invested in loupes so that we would learn how to work correctly from the start – and not get into any bad habits! A correct posture is determined by the working distance of the loupes (to prevent slouching) and the declination angle of the optics (to prevent neck strain).

Having an improved view of our technical work also allowed us to improve in our technical skills faster than our colleagues who struggled without loupes. It’s hard to perform a crown prep on the distal surface of an upper molar if you can’t see what you’re doing.

What are the best loupes for dental students?

Most dental students start with 3.0x magnification, nearly always in TTL loupes. This magnification is the perfect balance between increased detail (vs 2.5x), and a larger field of view (vs 3.5x). A larger field of view makes it easier for students to introduce their instruments into the magnified field, and therefore to get used to working with loupes.

TTL loupes provide a larger depth of field than flip up loupes, which allows students to treat all kinds of patients (even those that are unable to fully recline in the chair). It also makes it easier to angulate dental hand pieces during treatment.

We are the original Student Loupes Company

In 2015, we started out as the Student Loupes Company. We soon discovered that it was not just students that wanted affordable magnification, but professionals too. We now operate both The Loupes Company and the Student Loupes Company to allow dentists, surgeons, students and many others to access high quality affordable magnification.
