The PhotoMed newsletter has been on hiatus

During that time, the newsletter received a facelift and worked off a few extra pounds. We hope to get the newsletter back on track with regular updates on the world of dental photography.

Canon has released another Rebel model - the T2i

The Canon Rebel T2i is the latest digital SLR camera to get HD quality video capability. The T2i is an 18 megapixel model that records 1080p HD video clips (up to 12 minutes). It also features a new 3" widescreen LCD screen that matches the aspect ratio of the captured image.

The Canon Rebel series cameras have been the most popular for dental photography for the last few years due to their size, light weight and price.

We offer the Rebel T2i with your choice of Canon and Sigma macro lenses and macro flashes. Read More »

Use dental photos to make sure there are no misunderstandings

This is a technique we learned from one of our doctors a few years ago.

Let's say you have a patient that you perceive as potentially difficult. The last thing you want to do is get to the end of a procedure and find out that your patient had a different expectation than you did.

At any step along the way where you discuss the treatment plan, take a quick photo that shows the current situation. Drop the photo into a word processing document and type a summary of the discussion you had with the patient. Print the page and have the patient sign that they understand the plan.

You now have a step-by-step photographic record in case there are any issues later on.
