Standards in Dental Photography

Course Description

The main purpose of photography in dentistry is documentation. The aim is to capture as much information as possible under reproducible conditions. To this end, the camera used, its accessories, and the format and illumination of the intraoral and extraoral images relevant to dentistry must be standardized. Under standardized photographic conditions, the images produced can be compared with each other, even if the subsequent images are taken a long time later and by different photographers. Only in this form can dental photography be used as a valuable documentation aid.

The standards described by Wolfgang Bengel in 1985 are still valid, but they would have to be updated and adapted to technical innovations.

Learning Objectives

Learn about the standards in Dental photography, the selection of a suitable equipment and the correct settings along with some tips & tricks for a better clinical experience.
