Description

Since the largest percent of learning takes place visually, photographs are a powerful way to educate and motivate your patients to accept treatment. Photography, both intraoral and extra-oral, is an important part of the patient’s clinical record. Dental photography is frequently overlooked, yet it is an important part of patient care and treatment acceptance. Photographs should be part of any comprehensive treatment plan and can be used in diagnosis, education and motivation for the patient, case presentation, laboratory communication, insurance submissions, public relations and marketing. This is a comprehensive course including technique options. (Sponsored in part by a grant from Nash Institute for Dental Learning.)
