Have you been confused about how to use photography to help patients understand their clinical problems? Showing patients what’s going on inside their mouth is more powerful than simply telling them. Pictures can illustrate a condition that you could never accurately describe. It’s why a picture is worth a thousand words and why we strongly recommend using digital photography. Pointing to a problem area with a digital image makes any issue become immediately clear. Remember, for most patients, if it doesn’t hurt, it isn’t a problem. Showing patients a photo of their own dental issue lets them understand the need for even the most preemptive of treatment plans.

This study club session will help you…

  • Know what pictures are necessary
  • When to use pictures during a case presentation and hygiene visit
  • Who should take pictures
  • Learn how diagnostic photography can help with treatment acceptance and insurance reimbursement
