Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Dental photography

In this module, you will learn about the uses of clinical photography, and how to take high quality pictures like we use in Dentaljuce. You will also learn how to become a great general photographer!

Clinicians worldwide are making increased use of clinical photography to enhance patient care, increase job satisfaction and to grow practices by demonstrating their skills and expertise.

In contemporary clinical practice there is a mandatory need for precise, accurate, contemporaneous documentation of patient assessments, diagnoses, clinical decisions and patient management based on those decisions. Clinical photos are an essential part of that documentation.

I cannot believe how brilliant this site is. I have passed Part 1 of the MJDF exam, and it will help so much for my Part 2. The animations, videos and content in general is just brilliant. Thank you.
