Picture Perfect Dentistry: Photography for Today's Dental Team
January 28, 2016
Digital photography is revolutionizing the way clinicians treat, diagnose, and communicate with patients
Visual documentation allows for integrated treatment planning, as images can be viewed and discussed efficiently
Patient photography and case documentation is another avenue for the team members to interact with patients in a personal, educational way
Advances in technology have allowed today’s dental practices to go beyond traditional, four-handed dentistry. The latest innovations invite a teamwork approach, specifically one driven by customization and dynamic communication. Based on their time spent with patients, these team members have the most opportunities to increase case acceptance.
Visually enhanced communication is one way to customize a treatment plan and assure a patient of your high level of commitment to their case. Working with a camera equipped with dental-specific functions will help improve patient understanding, ultimately leading to higher case acceptance and practice productivity.
