Proper use of dental photography can make all the difference in a fast-paced practice. Initial patient photos used toward a diagnosis come in handy when patients are apprehensive about scheduling treatment or would simply like a better understanding of the proposed procedures. Intraoral and extraoral photography is even more critical during the communication phase with your dental laboratory and technician. Considering the patient will most likely never meet the individuals fabricating their restorations and designing their smile makeover, the more clearly the instructions can be transferred, the more successfully an outcome can be predicted. Feel free to browse the following videos and articles showcasing some of my preferred photography techniques and the armamentarium used to make the process develop smoothly.
