Establishing Your Skills in a Visual World



David Wagner, DDS
Clincal Lecturer, UCLA School of Dentistry

Marc Hayashi, DMD
Assistant Clinical Professor, UCLA Dentistry


Have you ever attended a dental presentation or found yourself scrolling on Instagram experiencing incredible dental
photography and wonder, how did they get those photos?

Today, the visual experience on the screen is a predominant form of meaningful and impactful information exchange.
In dentistry, photography is not a new concept, however, digital photography has become a necessary tool in all
aspects of the profession to communicate with patients, showcase outcomes, and market our practices. For many, high-level photography is now expected.

In this course we teach dentists with a baseline knowledge of photography the necessary skills to raise the bar and
immediately execute all aspects of high-level dental photography in the dental office setting.

Prior to the course we will guide dentists on what equipment to buy with practicality and private practice logistics in
mind, based on what has been tested and being used throughout the world today.
