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. It is should encompass the whole spectrum of dental care from damage and disease through treatment to review and monitoring.

With today’s digital technology every dentist can chronicle photographically what they see in the mouth, whether for general records or whenever the situation warrants photographic documentation.

The closest thing to what we see through our loupes is a photograph and this can actually reflect the reality of the mouth. 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 clinical photography augments charting, notes and x-rays. It significantly enhances record-taking, validates 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 and accessories 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.

Attendees will be able to use four different recommended camera systems during the practical sessions, as well as ensuring their own cameras are fit for purpose.

This course will be an invaluable experience for general dentists and specialists and will be useful for general photography as well.
