The “before & after” dental work
Dr. Tekin is passionate about photography. Whether taking photos of his family, or his patients, Dr. Tekin is rarely without a camera. Here are his thoughts relative to dental photography:
I use dental photography as an important communication tool in my practice. As such, presenting those images unbiased is critical. My goal in showing patients completed dental work I’ve done is to display a side-by-side, “apples-to-apples” comparison of the “before & after”. Every effort should be made to duplicate the parameters of the original photograph – how else can you evaluate the outcome?
I see other websites showing the “after” photo, and it’s far from “apples-to-apples”. Can anyone truly evaluate the dentistry done on the attractive blonde lady pictured? I don’t think so !
It is important to note that the clinical photos I take are not doctored in any way other than cropping and sizing. Applications such as Photoshop can produce almost ANY effect – using such tactics is unethical in my opinion.
