Program Purpose / Objectives

Present it right and they will say yes! Grow Your Practice: understanding why patients say yes.

Making dental images and knowing how to utilize them are a major element in expanding cosmetic and other elective dental services. Digital dental imaging allows the practice to provide better treatment planning, legal documentation, record keeping and laboratory communication.

Most course attendees understand the basic benefits of digital images, but don’t understand the power of digital dental images nor the procedural steps or skills in place to achieve them. Step by step procedures and the hands-on nature of the course help make clear the process from procurement to presentation to benefits.

What is provided: Digital cameras; Digital Photography Made Simple workbook (Yours to keep); Presentation template software; Professional mirrors and retractors.
