Dental Photography: Portfolio Guidelines

LIT - The Simple Protocol for Dental Photography in the Age of Social Media - Dr. Miguel Ortiz
This book is geared toward practitioners who want to master dental photography and use their photography to build their social media presence. Written for visual learners, this book breaks down the fundamentals of dental photography for clinical practice by outlining the concepts, equipment, and key protocols for taking predictable clinical photographs. That is where most photography books end, but this author also explores advanced techniques and demonstrates how to achieve some of the most characteristic looks in artistic dental photography, including the glossy effect, chiaroscuro, chromaticity, and texture manipulation. Finally, the author provides fresh insight into the ever-changing world of digital marketing and explains what you need to know to use your photography to reach your patient market on social media.

Photography in Dentistry: Theory and Techniques in Modern Documentation - Drs. Loiacono & Pascoletti
Whether they are used for patient communication, consultation with a laboratory or colleague, diagnosis, clinical or legal records, or scientific presentation or publication, images are a much more powerful means of communication in the field of dentistry than the spoken or written word. However, dental photography is lacking set standards that would allow the continuity and reproducibility essential to clinical and scientific documentation. To address this need, this book presents guidelines for photographic documentation that will enable practitioners to produce images that faithfully convey clinical data. Precise instructions, including the positions of the patient, assistant, and practitioner; camera settings and flash positions; aiming and focal points; and the types and positions of required accessories are detailed in text and images, and an example of the desired final image is provided. This comprehensive text provides clinicians with all the information they need to feel confident in creating effective and compelling dental images.

"Photography for me is different than some other facets of dentistry. It has a power that is unspoken and transformative. With just a visual image, you can change the mind-set of a patient and elicit emotion from both the subject and the photographer. It is art. It is dynamic. It is simple. It is complex. It is powerful."
