Dental Loupes For Students Offer From British Dental Association

This is great. I fully believe there should not be any dentist doing restorative dentistry without magnification and proper illumination. This should be the standard of care. MJ

Final-year dental students are to benefit from an exclusive finance deal from the British Dental Association for the purchase of dental loupes to help encourage healthy and effective working habits right from the start of their career. The loupes are part of a special new membership benefit offer for students which also includes free membership of the BDA for their final year of study.

The scheme, supported by DP Medical Systems and Nuview Ltd, reflects the BDA's commitment to supporting students and young dentists at the beginning of their professional life.

Peter Ward, Chief Executive of the BDA, said:
"We value greatly our growing student membership, and we want to do all we can to help individual students as they begin their career. Dental loupes are an important piece of equipment for dentists, providing magnification to make treatment easier and improving posture. We want to encourage young dentists into good working habits right from the start of their career, and we're delighted DP Medical Systems and Nuview Ltd are supporting this initiative."

The new member benefit will be launched at the Dental Showcase exhibition in October at a dedicated section on the BDA stand. Details are also available from http://www.bda.org/loupes.

1. The two-year finance agreement will see the BDA's chosen strategic partners for the offer, DP Medical Systems and Nuview Ltd, give free BDA membership for a year, worth £45, to final-year students who buy loupes via the BDA. They will also receive half-price BDA membership in their first year after graduation.
