Why clinical photography?
Nothing is more frustrating when you spend time carefully explaining to a patient the current state of their broken, decayed teeth, and they just don’t believe you, or worse, don’t even care. Excellent clinical photography is the simplest, most effective way to minimise this.
A picture tells a thousand words. Intra-oral images are foreign to patients, and don't show in detail the cracks and abscesses that could seriously impact their mouth. Unlike intra-oralcameras, showing high-quality SLR images of the patient’s teeth can help them understand the issues they’re facing, deepen their trust in you as their practitioner, and increase long-term patient loyalty.
Avoid patient skepticism by learning the fundamentals of clinical photography, clarifying your communication and increasing case acceptance.
