There are several reasons why it is a good idea to have dental photography as an essential part of your practice. And the good news is that you don’t have to be a professional photographer to make it work.
Routinely photographing your patients and the treatments they receive is of immense value to your daily clinical practice. You get more comprehensive documentation to rely on, as well as a pedagogical basis for discussions in your contacts with patients, laboratories and other dental experts. Before-and-after images may also serve as a successful marketing tool to showcase your business as well as your expertise.
Dentsply Sirona Implants worked together with dentist and professional photographer Kris Chmielewski to create a comprehensive and pedagogical Clinical Photography Manual. This manual is aimed both at beginners and those with experience working with intraoral photography. It offers detailed and expert tips on equipment such as the camera, lens and flash. There’s also practical guidelines for correct settings, camera positions and post-processing of images.
