This online dental photography course offers a comprehensive approach to this fundamental aspect of dentistry, addressing the limitations of traditional techniques and elements that have remained unchanged for almost two hundred years.
Recognizing the significance of both extraoral and intraoral photography, the course aims to equip participants with an advanced protocol consisting of 28 images and a condensed version of 7 photos. These protocols can be seamlessly integrated into the patient’s treatment process.
A notable highlight of the course is the introduction of an innovative intraoral photography kit, invented and patented by Dr. Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya. This groundbreaking kit enables dentists to capture rectangular photographs that eliminate the visibility of retractor edges or mirrors, resulting in more aesthetically pleasing images.
By enrolling in this course, participants can expect to enhance their photography skills while optimizing their time efficiency. With improved techniques and the ability to produce higher-quality images, dental professionals will effectively communicate with patients, document cases, and present treatments to colleagues, insurance providers, and during interdisciplinary consultations.
