Event Details...

This event includes information on the following topics:

The intended audience for this event includes:

Clinical photography is not just about beautiful white teeth or cosmetic artistry. With today’s digital technology every dentist can chronicle what they see in the mouth, whether for general records or whenever the situation warrants photographic documentation. The closest thing to the reality of the mouth is a photograph. X-rays do not show failing restorations, crack lines and wear patterns; notes cannot always clearly indicate the sequence of events in a clinical session; study models poorly represent the restored nature of teeth and the health of soft tissues.

The routine use of digital photography can significantly enhance record-taking, validate clinical decisions and provide an impressive tool for patient education and practice marketing. Attendees will see reviews of all types of cameras and the armamentarium required to take extra and intra-oral pictures. People easily comprehend visual data and this course will show instant quality images can dramatically improve patient understanding and acceptance of treatment recommendations. This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be useful for general photography as well.

  • Photographs as part of records and communication in everyday dental practice
  • Images for patient education… ‘I want you to see what I see’
