After nearly 15 years, I've decided to get a new pair of TTL loupes to replace my SurgiTel flip-ups. I decided to go with Lumadent's 3.3 loupes and LED headlight. After 2 weeks, I'm really happy with the product. good quality loupes that are clear and the light works great. There are other reviews of the Lumadent products that are more thorough, however, I'm writing to let everyone know of the exceptional customer service. I placed an order with Noah and he stayed in touch throughout the measurement process. It's simple yet very accurate. There was a short in one of the wires, I called Noah, and in a few days a replacement arrived at the office. I highly recommend Lumadent's products. They have exceptional customer support.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the lumadent led light it literally enabled me to maximize the effectiveness of my loupes. I love the light weight and I have found the customer service to be outstanding.
I've used Lumadent for the past three years all throughout dental school. Now in my last year, I got another "best value" kit before graduating. The student and group purchase pricing is unbeatable, made even better by the fact that the light is fantastic! I love the fact that it's simple and no frills, no integrated cord (meaning quick and easy and CHEAP replacement) and no proprietary plug for charging the batteries. Incredibly user -oriented design. And the safety glasses, the safety glasses! For anyone reading, GET THE SAFETY GLASSES WITH A LIGHT MOUNT. They will prove to be indispensable, especially if you do any charitable or dental missions work.
Service has been top notch. Our local rep, Jo Medina, has been available every step of the way and answered all of my co-purchasers' questions without hesitation. Submitted our orders, quick and easy payment for everyone, and we got our kits in THREE days!
I'll be a Lumadent user for life, and I'm willing to bet you've just won another 20 from our group buy!
Amazing product at a reasonable price, and even more amazing customer service. I worked with a customer service agent named Faith who went above and beyond to help me. I wanted to connect my light to my own pair of Oakley radar safety glasses, and Faith promptly answered all questions via phone and email, sent instructions on how to install the part, and delivered the product in an incredibly timely fashion, all while being very pleasant to work with. Honestly the best customer service of any company I have ever worked with (both Faith and other Lumadent customer service agents).. which will make me a loyal Lumadent user in the future.
My LumaDent representative was extremely helpful and responsive to my emails and phone calls to order my new LumaDent light. Everyone from product support to customer service were very friendly and on top of everything when helping me with my orders and helping me with attaching my light to my loupes. My loupes came in a quick fashion, and they are working great. Love my new UniLux light, and I look forward to working with LumaDent more in the future!
I am an Australian dentistry student who purchased a Lumadent light last year. When comparing the prices, there was really no comparison! The official light for my loupes was well over $1600, and the lumadent option that I purchased was roughly a quarter of that (with shipping and handling included), and it fits perfectly onto my loupes. It is ideal for young graduates and/or students for which there are greater financial considerations. Having done the research it was by far the best light for the most affordable price. I had a small issue recently with one of the cables that attaches the battery source to the light. I sent an email explaining the issue and that day the issue was dealt with without any hassle and a new cable was immediately dispatched to me. I would highly recommend this product to anyone considering it, and living in Australia posed no issue whatsoever.

Good service and empathy for your clients is what I value in a good business and LumaDent is just that. And I mean that with all sincerity. I purchased a great quality light from LumaDent, and recently I was again in touch with Justin Bryan who went out of his way to help me with a new mount to fit my new loupes. And let me not forget to thank Jo Medina as well for being so prompt in relaying my information in the appropriate direction. You guys have my loyalty! Thank you.

Just received the UniLux headlamp and 2.5x TTL loupes. These are both fantastic products! The field of view and clarity of the telescopes is outstanding! My previous headlamp could not be fixed due to a wire malfunction, which drove me to find a better product. The UniLux has replaceable wires, and LumaDent even threw in an extra cable with the purchase of the light! Brightness is outstanding even on the lowest setting, yet doesn't cause any discomfort over prolonged use. The battery pack can magnetically attach to a scrub top or shirt which acts as a lanyard for the loupes. Two battery packs included and they even had the insight to place a button on the unit to check the charge to prevent drain on the battery from a constantly lit display. Ingenious! The switch is easily activated by bump from the back of the hand to prevent cross-contamination. My favorite thing is the little magnet and "arm" on the composite filter. You can flick this thing over so easily with the mirror handle and the magnet stops it at the perfect spot. Phenomenal products! If I ever need another light or a pair of loupes LumaDent will be my first pick!

Thanks so much for making such a great product! To other dental professionals, I highly recommend both the loupes and the light. I have had other brands of loupes, but decided to try the lumadent flip ups and I love them as much or more than my other pair of high end loupes, and the lumadents cost less than half as much. The light will also change your life. A week or two ago I did a restoration on the distal of a third molar and I thought to myself "It would take me forever to do this without this light." Great customer service, great products, really nice guys. Try it, you won't regret it.

LUMIDENT is your FINAL AND ONLY STOP for your optic light and battery system. I purchased a headlight system and battery from designs for Vision. The products were very pricey and I thought the product will be reliable but I had nothing but problems a month after I got the headlight system . Also, I thought my reproductive organs were about to fry because the battery pack got so hot. The replacements broke down as well. Thank goodness I found about Lumident from a yelp review. Please, save yourself a lot of time, frustration, headache and money. Their products are well made and very durable and way more affordable that, DFV nd other set ups out there. PLus, customer service is awesome. Someone is always there . A human being. This is a genuine review. Last thing you want to happen is for your equipment to fail mid treatment and have the lights go out on you. Give them a try. You will not be disappointed, ALly S. my Lumident connection is awesome and very cordial and professional. Well, I can go on and on but you'll find out how great this company is! Rae

I received my first Lumadent light as a gift from another dentist. It outlasted my loupes and I got a Unilux light to go with my new light. The Unilux is great because there is no tether that goes to your waist or pocket to get caught on things. There are other loupes that have batteries at the end of the arms, but this seemed more comfortable to me. At first it seemed strange to have a battery at my neck, but after a day I didn't even notice it was there. I had a tear in one of the pieces that connects the battery to my loupes and they replaced it quickly and at no charge!
Switched over from another light and will never turn back! The lumadent is made solid and has a great battery life and brightness. Much more stable than my last light and works great with my loupes. The customer service is amazing. If you ever need anything, they are fast and reliable. I will most likely purchase one more after I graduate from school.

I was in contact with Jose in regards to my battery cell repair and he was phenomenal. I just wanted to say I really appreciate the next day air (got to me just in time), the name label (makes the case look more professional) as well as the new storage area for the loupes. Also I appreciate the new wires and upgraded battery cell!!! This company has exceeded my expectations and I will definitely order more in the future. Thanks a lot Jose!!
Victoria was very helpful with questions I had about replacing my cord to my light. Great customer service.
LumaDent's customer service is unmatched. When looking for a new light, I had narrowed my search down to a few companies. I contacted a few companies to get some more information due to their complicated order forms (or lack there of), and it was like they didn't care if they received my business or not. After reading countless outstanding reviews regarding LumaDent's customer service, it convinced me to go with this company, and I am so glad I did. I received the product in 3 days, and each day I got an update on my tracking info. They even contacted me before shipping to clarify that I had entered the correct info they needed to send the appropriate mounting bracket. The light itself is amazing, and so much brighter and lighter than my Surgitel light. The anti curing filter even has an awesome design which uses magnets to keep the filter up and out of the way or down when you need it. Couldn't be happier with my decision to go with LumaDent.

Received the light a month ago-- Very easy to assemble and easy to use. Found the light to be quite bright and real happy with the daily duration of the light packs! Was a great pick and company service is excellent-- responsive by phone--and online- do highly recommend!
Excellent product! I am able to use my super reliable LumaDent light with both of my loupes. The ease of charging and attachment to my eyewear was very easy. I am over the moon satisfied with the exceptional customer service, communication and customer care that I purchased a second light when my updated loupes arrived. My first light is still going strong after three years of use!! Love the LumaDent products: reliable and appropriate light source for my magnification eyewear.
I like light very much. Because it is very light & powerful.
This is the best, brightest and lightest light I have used, and the best part - it doesn't break the budget! I now find it difficult working without the use of this light, I even convinced my boss to buy the light as well! Lumadent have a fantastic product along with great customer service with a very quick response! highly recommended A++

I have used a LumaDent loupe and light for approximately 2 years now and have been very satisfied with the product. When I have had any problems, the costumer service had been great and my problems have been resolved very quickly. I'd highly recommend the Luma Dent product. Read more reviews on Facebook!
Totally a fan of Lumadent headlamp! I've had mine for maybe a year now and can't live without it. My loupes are from Designs for Vision and so was my original LED headlamp and batteries set. Originally I ordered my Lumadent headlamp and batteries as a back up, but actually now it's my only headlamp. I've since discarded the Design for Vision's headlamp and don't even miss it even though it cost more than double the Lumadent headlamp. When I found out how feasibly priced and quality the Lumadent headlamp and batteries actually are, I jumped ship in no time. Once again, totally a fan!!!!
It's no secret that chronic pain and fatigue makes life less enjoyable and quite often dentists and hygenists suffer from either one or both of these. However, both of these are easily preventable by using loupes and portable headlight systems! Back and neck pain in the dental field is often a result from poor posture, as many lean forward to see fine details or alleviate eye strain. This can be prevented by using dental loupes to see more clearly and work at a more ergonomically sound operating posture.
Utilizing a pair of dental loupes no matter what your specialty can both increase the quality of care and help prevent personal health issues. Years of spending your days working in a small oral cavity plays a major role in ergonomics, and how your body feels at the end of each day. Without the use of dental loupes bad habits will form and lead to poor posture and eye strain, often resulting in more serious health issues later in life or even an early retirement. Using dental loupes will allow dentists and hygenists to see effortlessly and more clearly while maintaining proper ergonomically sound sitting posture.
Not all lights are created equal. Every light has a color temperature and ours comes in 2 varieties. What's the difference between them? Which is better for me? What is color temperature? What if I have sensitive eyes? In this blog we'll explore the pros and cons of having a warmer or cooler color temperature as it applies to our headlight systems.
