Premier 1 Day Course on Clinical Photography in Dentistry

Melbourne, June 24th, 2022

Discover the high quality clinical photography methods that produce better records, manage risk, improve patient communication and become a powerful marketing tool for your practice

In modern dentistry, clinical photography is essential for proper case management, patient communication and marketing to attract new patients. In fact, it’s a fundamental part of best practice, supporting and reinforcing treatment decisions and outcomes.

Capture what X-rays can’t

Unfortunately, X-rays do not show:

  • Failing restorations
  • Crack lines and wear patterns

Or what clinical notes might miss…

Such as the sequence of events in a clinical session.

And what study models struggle to show...

Such as the restored nature of teeth and the health of soft tissues.

And instead, get the best possible view inside your patients’ mouth with high definition and accurate photographs that tell the real story!

In this 1 day course, clinical photography expert Dr Peter Sheridan will show you the techniques to consistently produce high quality dental photographs.

Topics Include:

  • Photographs as an integral part of records and communication in everyday dental practice
  • Broadening the scope of clinical photography to include all the teeth and oral tissues as well as the disease and damage that dentists confront every day
