30.12 Producing an Orthodontic Series of 9 Photos with a Small Camera

This course covers the precise criteria for excellent photos so that the learner will be able to recognize when a photo is acceptable and when it is not. It also demonstrates every step when producing an orthodontic series of 9 photographs so that the learner will know what procedures need to be changed for photos that are unacceptable. With this knowledge, the individual will be able to take photos on a patient and immediately delete and retake any photos that appear to be unacceptable. This will make the editing and downloading of raw photographs more efficient.

Even though this course demonstrates production with a small point and shoot camera, the basic principles are applicable when using a digital SLR camera. Since this course has been used to train thousands of dental professionals and students, a small, easy-to-operate camera was easier to use in those hands-on sessions than a SLR camera. A future presentation demonstrating the use of a popular SLR camera is planned.

Goal-The Goal of this course is to train the individual how to recognize excellent diagnostic photographs and produce an orthodontic series of 9 photographs with excellent diagnostic quality.

Objectives- At the conclusion of this presentation the learner will:

  1. Identify the criteria of excellent photos

  2. Identify why selected photos are unacceptable

  3. List and demonstrate the step-by-step process of producing an excellent series of 9 photos and state why each step is important.

  4. State the procedures that must be changed to correct unacceptable photos.

This course Presentation has about 93 embedded quiz questions that help the learner focus on the important concepts. The Presentation is sectioned into 13 topics where each topic covers the criteria of the view and production of the view.

Uploading Photos into Dolphin Imaging

  1. Find, select, and download a patient’s clinical photographs from a camera into a computer folder.

  2. Select a composite layout for 9 photos that includes the Close-up of the Smile image place holder
