Digital photography is not difficult to master, but it does take intentionality to acquire the photographic records on your patients. This basic hands-on course will give participants enough knowledge and practical experience to start using digital photography in their practices on Monday. Participants will learn about the types of equipment available when selecting a camera system for the office, as well as instruction on how to use retractors and mirrors to get acceptable photographs for patient and lab communication.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify various camera basics and options.
  • Set up an armamentarium.
  • Accurately position the patient.
  • Effectively use mirrors and retractors.
  • Capture fundamental images.

    This course is in collaboration with PDS Institute.
