All dental practices rely on photography to some extent. However, many practices are now using outdated technology. Using the right tools and photography techniques can change the way you practice dentistry. Read on to learn the benefits of upgrading your dental photography skills.
Better Patient Communication
Dental photography is the easiest way to show patients what’s going on in their mouths. Unlike x-rays and MRIs, photos are clear and easy for an untrained person to understand. High-quality images and upgraded dental software make it easy for patients to see both their current oral health and also their dentist’s treatment goals.
Improved Diagnoses and Treatment Planning
Clear photography can also help in diagnosis. High-resolution photos are easier to enhance and enlarge, which can be crucial if the patient has any subtle changes in their teeth or gums. Photos also allow you to easily get second opinions from your colleagues.
If a patient needs more complex dental work, then photography can help you document their progress and plan for future procedures. Sharing these photos with your patient will also help them feel like they are a part of the treatment-planning process.
Share Information Easily
Dental photos can be shared with oral surgeons, orthodontists, lab clinicians, and other professionals. With high-quality dental photography, you can better communicate with others and help your patient get quick, accurate treatment. Clear photography also makes insurance verification so much easier.
Grow Your Business
High-quality photos are also great for advertising and marketing. Simple before-and-after photos speak volumes to potential patients. Using the right tools and camera techniques will make these photos as clear and effective as possible.
Dental photography can also take your practice website to the next level. Instead of using stock photos, you can personalize your site with your actual work. This builds patient trust and allows you to showcase your skills.
