The ultimate dental experience begins and ends with digital photography. Digital photography in dentistry provides practitioners with enormous possibilities to support everything from documentation and lab communication to testimonials and marketing. This course will help the dental practitioner maximize the benefits of clinical digital photography. Once basic knowledge of how to obtain proper exposure is understood, proper camera settings and equipment will be reviewed with tips to achieve perfect images.
Learn how to take standardized clinical images by watching Dr. Jason Olitsky complete a clinical series on a patient in his own treatment room. The course will also introduce ways to create images that are not only technically correct, but artistically superior.
