Learn The Secrets To Taking High Quality Dental Photographs That Build Patient Confidence And Produce Better Outcomes, Case After Case.

If you’re still relying mostly on X-rays, or you’ve never had any formal training on clinical digital photography, then this module will open your eyes (and lenses!) to a whole new world of dentistry…

You’ll build confidence with your patients

As a dentist, you strive for the best possible outcomes for your patients… and this starts with a clear picture of what’s going on inside their mouths.

Unfortunately, X-Rays do not show failing restorations, crack lines, wear patterns, the restored nature of teeth or the health issues of soft tissues.

And, without the right techniques and tools, your current digital camera set up might be missing more than you think.

You’ll attract new patients

Nothing shows potential patients your excellent work than a high quality before and after photograph. If the image is too dark, blurry, or even at the wrong angle, it will do little to build confidence in your practice.

You’ll keep better records

For record keeping and legal documentation, high quality photographs are far more preferable to patient notes or X-rays.

You’ll do better at monitoring patient disease

Clear, high quality photographs can identify and track gum disease far more efficiently and reliably than X-rays or clinical notes.

You’ll perform more accurate shade selection

For veneers or implants, shade selection is critical. High quality photos will help prevent lighting issues that can lead to misleading tooth shade appearance, poor selection and an unsatisfactory outcome.

You may already use digital photography equipment in your clinic, but are you getting the best results with it?

You will be able to accurately diagnose orthodontic problems, formulate appropriate treatment plans and plan ideal future mechanics.

Just like any instrument or tool in your office, technology changes over time, along with the ways in which we use it.

Using modern digital photography equipment and the latest techniques will result in clearer communication and better outcomes for your Orthodontic patients, along with improved record keeping and risk management for your practice.

Taught by Peter Sheridan, clinical senior lecturer at Sydney University, leading expert on Clinical Photography and general dentist with over 40 years experience.

Dr Sheridan will show you the right tools and techniques to take high quality digital photographs that capture a face, an arch, a quadrant or a tooth, with the kind of detail that you and your Orthodontic patients and your general dental patients have never seen before.

You’ll learn:

  • Rationale for use – the scope of Clinical Photography
  • Principles and settings
  • Camera choices – body, lens and flash
  • In-camera post-processing… is it possible?
  • Where does the Intra-oral camera and the iPhone fit into Clinical Photography?
  • Accessories – Retractors and mirrors
  • The team – who takes the photos?
  • Positioning and technique (videos)
  • Positioning and technique with hands on practice and guidance
  • Improving patient compliance
  • Data management
  • Achieving quality, consistency and efficiency

Typodont Training

Learn to treat your patient from start to finish, and perform non extraction therapy in the lower arch and extraction therapy in the upper arch, as if it is a real patient. During this training, you’ll learn to:

  • Start by bonding brackets on a typodont
  • Place the initial wires and see how the teeth move
  • Use auxiliaries as required eg lacebacks, Open Coil Spring, tipbacksprings, canine uprighting springs
  • Continue the levelling and aligning process with progressive archwire sequence
  • Prepare the patient for Upper space closure
  • Be proficient in different space closure techniques
  • Use of elastics as required
  • Use RCOS /ACOS wires
  • Use auxiliary wires if necessary such as high torque wires, negative torque wires
  • Use other auxiliaries such as torquing auxiliaries
  • Perform ideal finishing with braided wires and /or finishing bends
  • Place bonded retainers


Speakers for this event

  • Dr Geoffrey Hall

    Dr Geoffrey Hall


    Dr Geoffrey Hall completed his dental training at the University of Melbourne in 1983, and then pursued his postgraduate orthodontic training at the University of Pennsylvania in 1990. While he had mixed results with his undergraduate dental education, he found his passion in orthodontics, coming first in his class at the University of Pennsylvania.

    That passion led him to open his successful practice at South Caulfield in Melbourne, where he specialised iin adult and children treatments including early treatment, conventional adolescent therapy, short-term orthodontics (Smilefast) and cosmetic treatment options including lingual braces, Invisalign and other aligner systems, and a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary treatment, including orthognathic surgical cases. . Over 28 years in practice and 10,000 orthodontic cases later, he has now dedicated himself to being the leading orthodontic educator for General Dentists, through The OrthoED Institute.

    Having developed the short term cosmetic orthodontic treatment called Smilefast, (with over 500 dentists having completed their training in Australia) the success is based around the unique digital indirect bonding system, the comprehensive theory, formulated from sound orthodontic principles and pre-course material. Add in the online support and Smilefast has developed into a profitable revenue stream for many of the dentists, who have embraced orthodontics into their practice.
