Clinical photography

18/12/2012

 

I am currently working in a practice where clinical photography is an integral part of their daily routine. I have never in my 25 years of dental nursing been involved in clinical photography, in fact my photography experience is extremely limited.
 
so to work at a practice where every day the camera comes out was very nerve racking, and also wondered why photography.
 
I have come to realise that clinical photography is a very important part of patients records and treatment planning, the patient can see exactly what we are seeing, and shows them what they actually look like and forms such a discussion that the patient truly feels they are involved in the planning of their treatment. Photography can also prevent disputes in befores and afters as patients are able to see exactly how they look.
Photography was also useful in providing the lab technician with more information. 
 
I still have a lot to learn from photography, and there are many more reasons for using it in clinics, but I am very impressed,  and will continue to learn.
