Magnification and Illumination for Precision

Elizabeth Reynoso, DDS, on DenMat’s PeriOptix® Loupes and Firefly® Cordless Headlight System

Elizabeth Reynoso, DDS

As a dentist, I take my job to prevent disease, detect abnormalities, and provide high-quality comprehensive care very seriously. As patients come in and out of the operatories at my Ceres, California-based dental practice, I feel confident that I'm providing the most thorough care, and I attribute a large part of that confidence to my use of DenMat's PeriOptix® Loupes and Firefly® Cordless Headlight System.

The PeriOptix brand has long been a leader in optical and light-based technology. Prior to discovering DenMat's PeriOptix Loupes, I had been using a pair of loupes that was unnecessarily heavy. To compensate for this, I often succumbed to holding myself in uncomfortable positions for prolonged periods of time, which began to affect my musculoskeletal health. Therefore, it's no surprise that I appreciate-and genuinely love-the thoughtful design of PeriOptix Loupes. These loupes were designed to be more lightweight and sleeker than their flip-up counterparts. Since switching to PeriOptix Loupes, which are designed with a steep declination angle, I've experienced improved visual acuity and body posture. Their excellent optical clarity has also resulted in reduced eyestrain, allowing me to perform my best work all day long.

PeriOptix Loupes are available in an array of colors and styles, so there is truly a customizable solution for everyone. They are made with high-end shatter-resistant glass, and they have an extremely precise optical quality and a large field of view. Furthermore, because the PeriOptix through-the-lens loupes are uniquely tailored and custom-fitted for each clinician, users sometimes even forget that they are wearing them.

In addition to PeriOptix Loupes, I've also come to rely on DenMat's Firefly Cordless Headlight System. This super lightweight cordless headlight provides two light intensity settings and easily affixes to any pair of loupes, eliminating the hassle of tangled cords and heavy power packs and allowing me to freely move from procedure to procedure without any interruptions. The system comes with two rechargeable light pods, so I always have one to use while the other is recharging. Another benefit of this headlight is that it is very easy to clean and reduces the risk of cross-contamination. Firefly's powerful light fully illuminates the working field, removing shadows and eliminating the need to constantly adjust overhead lighting or to use overhead lighting altogether.

As an oral health professional, I strive to not only care for my patients but also myself. Thanks to PeriOptix Loupes and the Firefly Cordless Headlight, I am able to do both.
