Digital cameras and dental photography are a critical piece of today’s modern dental practice.  It can be intimidating and overwhelming to think about and learn, especially for those who have not used a dSLR camera before. However, by understanding how to take quality pictures, you will increase case acceptance, enhance the value of your practice, and greatly improve the level of service you can provide for your patients. High quality digital photographs are extremely helpful for excellent laboratory communication, patient education, diagnosis, treatment planning, and documentation.

In this course, we invite dentists of all skill levels to attend, whether you’ve never held a camera before or want to take your skill up a notch. Assistants and staff are also invited to attend with the doctor. We believe quality dental photography is a critical component to the modern practice, and this course will answer your questions and increase your confidence in this important skill.

If you are looking to purchase a dSLR camera before the course, or have any questions regarding your current camera and it’s applicability for this course, please contact the CE office beforehand so we can help you decide.
