UKloupes was established by an enthusiastic dental student who felt that extortionate prices were being paid by dental students for dental loupes. After much independent research, Dave Stone found that the actual cost to produce these loupes was only around 15% of the price they were being sold for.

UKloupes therefore seeks to supply affordable dental loupes to students, aiming to improve the physical health of dental students and to raise the quality and speed of future dental treatment.

Every year, the Shell LiveWIRE and Shell Springboard programmes recognise and award ground-breaking UK entrepreneurs helping to accelerate the move to a sustainable, low-carbon future. And this year is no exception.
