Course Description

Dental imaging is an extremely valuable tool for practicing dentists, auxiliaries and dental educators. The old adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words ” was never truer then when discussing a patient’s dental concerns. By using the new technologies in photography to communicate with patients, labs, insurance providers, specialists and other dentists, we can impart a great deal of information faster and easier than ever before. The objective of this elective will be to give the student a basic understanding of the latest innovations in dental imaging. The student should be able to digitally photograph both extra and intra-oral subjects and manage the images when finished with the course. Digital cameras, computers and related software will be furnished to allow the student to complete the course requirement.
