This hands-on course is designed for dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants. Participants will work along with the instructor to learn the skills needed to take usable intra-oral images.
Digital photography is an extremely valuable tool for practicing dentists, auxiliaries, and dental educators. By using digital imaging, we can communicate with patients, labs, insurance companies, and our peers faster and easier than ever before.
This course is intended to address common questions regarding digital dental photography:
Lab - Limited to 30 participants
The lab session will allow the participant first-hand exposure and experience to digital dental equipment. After practicing the techniques taught in the morning session, participants will practice taking intra- and extra-oral images on each other. By using a laptop computer and an LCD projector, participants will see the results of their work and how easily imaging can be incorporated into clinical practice.
Required Lab Equipment
Please bring mirrors, retractors, and a rubber mixing bowl (for warm water to heat the mirrors). If you have a digital camera capable of intra-oral, macro photography that you would like to practice with, please feel free to bring it along. Please make sure that it is in good working condition (charged batteries, memory cards, etc). If you have any questions about your camera's dental capabilities email Dr. Goodchild at: email@example.com.
