Photographing Patients’ Malocclusion


9:00 to 12:00

In this digital age, effective patient and team communication is predicated on clinical photography. Digital photography helps identify patients who may have physical and structural issues. Unfortunately, more than 80% of the population have a less-than-ideal bite. Doctors see this every day but have a hard time with these conversations. Team members must be able to look at an image and talk about what they see and the potential consequences if left untreated. But before the team can do that, they must know what they are looking at in the photo and how it got there.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the dental armamentarium necessary for capturing precise intraoral photographs

  • Describe the proper position and angles for photography subjects in dentistry
