People often ask us: “Why is fluorescent lighting still being offered as workplace lighting in dental practices and treatment rooms, even though LED has been readily available for years?”

The reason for this is that LED’s light spectrum could not yet match the full spectrum daylight of fluorescent tubes as LED researchers’ main goal was to reduce energy consumption. You might have noticed the use of LED light being limited to less demanding surroundings such as parking garages, outdoor lighting or hallways. Neither did led technology allow for colour temperatures of 5500-5800 Kelvin, without composites hardening immediately, being flicker free, having a colourfastness of 93+ CRI/Ra nor to be anti-glare.

Dental Lighthouse began applying a new type of LED in its luminaires from 2018, which fulfils all characteristics mentioned afore. The final results are even better than those of full spectrum daylight fluorescent lights. Now in 2019, after a long period of testing, Dental Lighthouse proudly presents the new and improved Dentled lighting line. This collection consists of recessed LED panels, surface-mounted, pendant fixtures in u-shape, light row or mono and of course made-to-measure. We offer a solution for every type of treatment room, measurement, budget and personal preference.
