“ Digital Photography and Patient Presentations”

“You can’t fix it if you didn’t know where you went wrong. You can’t make it right unless you know what to do.”
Dennis Braunston
Founder, Dental Learning Centers

Digital photography images are the cornerstone for improved documentation, clinical diagnosis, laboratory communication, and patient motivation. Hands-on teaching techniques put learning steps in small, repetitive simple increments. Technology, computer organization and presentation are integral parts to success. Improve your ability to effectively take professional quality digital intraorals, portraits and laboratory pictures; store, organize and edit. Create effective patient education presentations.

Following the skills of acquiring and organizing your pictures, learn techniques that create a “constructive” non-confrontational environment, enabling your patient to share their wants, desires, and expectations. Dentistry is a lot more fun when your production skyrockets, tension subsides and you and your patient are on the “same page.”

What is provided: Digital cameras; Digital Photography Made Simple workbook (Yours to keep); Presentation template software; Professional mirrors and retractors.
