There are treatment modalities within dentistry for which portraits are essential records.
The face of a patient with all its expressive possibilities provides valuable information for the planning, execution and final evaluation of dental treatment. Portrait photography is designed to capture this information under standardized conditions. A camera mounted on a tripod and a permanently mounted flash light source are best suited for this purpose. Reflectors allow good illumination of the patient. In addition to correct illumination, it is important to ensure a consistent head position to guarantee reproducibility and adequate evaluation of the information.
