Digital patient photos

June 15, 2012
In this blog, Dr. Larry Emmott talks about how digital photography can benefit you and your dental practice.

With film, taking processing and storing images was such a time-consuming, expensive, and tedious task that we never did it. With digital photography it is fast, inexpensive, and easy. Every dentist should have a set of photographic images of every patient just as we have a set of X-rays. The only reason we don’t is a relic from our predigital past.
