About Dr. Shadi Samawi’s Clinical Dental Photography Masterclass Course

This Hands-On, practical course is designed and geared towards introducing Clinical Digital Photography to interested General Dental Practitioners, Dental Specialists, undergraduate and postgraduate level dental students, as well as dental assistants, therapists and hygienists.

It will also enable the clinician to understand the basic fundamentals of digital dental photography, related equipment and post-processing. Through various slide and video demonstrations, the step-by-step record-taking procedure will be demonstrated, including many useful tips that will make it easy for clinicians to achieve outstanding clinical photographs of their treated cases, using the simplest possible means.
