PeriOptix™ Introduced The Future of Flip-Up Loupes at the American Dental Association’s 150th Annual Session This Month
San Clemente, CA – October 7, 2009 – PeriOptix™, one of the nation’s leading providers of high quality magnification and illumination systems for medical and dental professionals, displayed its systems at the American Dental Association’s 150th Annual Session on September 30 – October 4 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
PeriOptix™ conducted product demonstrations of its magnification and illumination systems to dentists and hygienists. The company showcased its new Flip-Up Loupes - redesigned, rethought and reengineered from hinge to lens. PeriOptix™ new Flip-Up Loupes feature a panoramic lens design with no protruding knobs and a maximized field of vision for unobstructed, effortless over-the-top visibility heretofore found only in custom, through the lens loupes. Also, the declination angle is the steepest in the industry— up to 50-degrees, which can help eliminate neck, back and eye strain—a common problem encountered by dentists and hygienists due to their working environment.
The new loupes introduced by PeriOptix also feature watertight optics, that allow for complete cleaning and disinfecting between cases. All of PeriOptix magnification systems have an exclusive feature not available on any other loupe: the PeriOptixTM “Set and Forget” feature for automatically and securely locking in personal settings. Once the loupes are set by the user to their proper alignment, the optics never move. That, coupled with the double hinge design, allows optics to smoothly return to the same position every time.
Booth attendees had the opportunity to utilize PeriOptix™ dental loupes and headlights in a simulated dental operatory. This unique opportunity offered prospective customers the ability to try various magnification levels and working distances that best meet their needs.
"The American Dental Association show is a great venue for us to reach the dentists and hygienists across the country to showcase our innovative loupes and portable headlight systems.” According to PeriOptix™ head of marketing, Roslyn Tholin, “We wanted introduce dentists and hygienists to a completely redesigned flip up loupe system,” Ms. Tholin said.
The American Dental Association Meeting in Hawaii was the 150th annual session of the American Dental Association and featured advanced programming presented by leading professionals in the field. Dental professionals from all over the United States and abroad acquired the latest information, networked with colleagues, experienced product demonstrations, learned cutting-edge techniques, and earned continuing education credits.
