PDT is honored to work with educational institutions to provide your students and faculty with superior-quality instruments to use while learning. Our dental instruments are created by observing and working with dental professionals, focusing on innovative purpose-driven design and clinician health through ergonomics. Providing students with PDT instruments from the start sets them up for a lifetime of better health and success.
Ideally weighted at only 13 grams with a 10 millimeter diameter handle and unique knurling designed to provide a comfortable grip, our instruments are the most ergonomic available on the market today. By focusing on ergonomics, PDT not only produces instruments with increased tactile sensitivity, they reduce the development of musculoskeletal disorders like carpel tunnel syndrome over the course of a clinician’s career.
