Video: Tips on how to improve your dental photography

A dental practice that wants to have consistent high-quality images must be up to speed on a few techniques.

Richard Young, DDS, is an expert in dental photography. He co-directs Loma Linda University School of Dentistry's D3 esthetics program. Young also practices full time, focusing on esthetic dentistry. At CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry in Anaheim, which was held April 30 to May 2 at the Anaheim Convention Center, he hosted hands-on courses for dentists and auxiliary staff on how to take “beautiful dental photographs.”

Attendees learned which equipment they need, how to set the camera for high-quality images, how to take simple portraits chairside and how to use photos in the new patient experience and communication with the lab.

Below is a video of Young providing some tips on how dentists and the dental staff can improve their dental photography.
