“ Digital Photography and Patient Presentations”

“You can’t fix it if you didn’t know where you went wrong. You can’t make it right unless you know what to do.”
Dennis Braunston
Founder, Dental Learning Centers

Digital photography images are the cornerstone for improved documentation, clinical diagnosis, laboratory communication, and patient motivation. Hands-on teaching techniques put learning steps in small, repetitive simple increments. Technology, computer organization and presentation are integral parts to success. Improve your ability to effectively take professional quality digital intraorals, portraits and laboratory pictures; store, organize and edit. Create effective patient education presentations.

Following the skills of acquiring and organizing your pictures, learn techniques that create a “constructive” non-confrontational environment, enabling your patient to share their wants, desires, and expectations. Dentistry is a lot more fun when your production skyrockets, tension subsides and you and your patient are on the “same page.”

What is provided: Digital cameras; Digital Photography Made Simple workbook (Yours to keep); Presentation template software; Professional mirrors and retractors.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
