Photos offer you the fastest way to develop trusting relationships with your patients. Most dentists do not use photography because handling through-the-lense cameras are bulky, hard to use and inconvenient. Dr. Eshom will show you an easier camera to use that takes the same pictures used in lectures and magazine articles. By taking and talking about what Dr. Eshom calls the “super six” pictures, you build the trust with your patient and will develop the practice you want and to do the procedures you enjoy. With the camera and techniques taught in this class, insurance companies will have less influence on your patient’s choices because patients will value your knowledge and value the treatment you recommended. Taking the “super six” pictures is easy; it’s done by your assistant, takes less than 3 minutes and only requires doctor time to discuss the pictures on the screen. With these methods, you don’t have to be pushy, possess a dynamic personality or have a persuasive style. It is just you talking as an expert in your field with your patient on your favorite topic: dentistry.
