Application Form

2015/01 Fotografie: een onmisbaar instrument in de tandartspraktijk.


Accredited - 30 pts.


VZW Restorative Dentistry and Implantology organizes at the Icarus Academy ahands-on course: ‘Photography: an indispensable tool in the dental practice.’

Photography in today’s dental practice is indispensable. It creates direct additional value in various domains: as a tool for communication and consultation with your patient, your labo as well as your colleagues, and as a unique source of information to develop and carry out treatments.

This comprehensive course will discuss in a practice-oriented manner how to make technically sound and predictable clinical pictures in a predictable way and which materials are needed.
In small groups at the dental chair, practical exercises will enhance the theoretical part of the training. Furthermore, on the basis of clinical examples, the course will discuss how photography improves aesthetic results of treatments. You will be able to apply knowledge and tools acquired during the course immediately in your daily practice.

After the course you are cordially invited at a reception for the opening of the Icarus Academy.

Accreditation: sub-area 0: 10 pts., sub-area 2: 20 pts.
