Abstract: Dental photography is important in teaching, research and clinical recording. The correct use of clinical camera is an invaluable way for the practitioner not only to document what is being done in terms of pre-treatment and post-treatment photographs of cases, thereby maintaining excellent clinical records, but also improve patient education and enhance his or her self-education. Without photography, the Patient easily forget what they looked like before they started the treatment. This article covers the bare minimum that a dentist needs or rather ought to know before he ventures into the interesting world of digital clinical photography.
