Dental Photography is an emerging area of art and science. As of today Dental Photography has more than 50 different applications. Some of them include documentation, marketing, shade selection, scientific presentations, sharing cases with your peers, medico legal, forensics etc. just to name a few. This is the exact reason why every dentist MUST embrace dental photography into the daily practice.
The most important and fruitful use of dental photography is probably in the first few appointments. In my dental practice, I was always short of expertise, equipment and means to take before and after photographs of the patients. Here is one of my recent ones. Will be back with a different perspective on dental photography on the later issues of the blog.
