"My team here at Crickhowell Dental Practice have just completed an afternoon of dental photography training with Mike. I first heard Mike lecture on the subject 16 years ago so I knew he was the expert I needed to contact when I wanted to train my dental nurses to take excellent intra-oral photographs. The session was done online and Mike had recommended what kit I needed to purchase ahead of the session. He also customised the learning to accommodate the features of one of my older DSLR cameras as well as a newer one. After the lecture we then spent the afternoon taking phots and I was thoroughly impresses with how quickly and how brilliant my nurses were at taking photos having never done it before! I can thoroughly recommend Mike's online dental photography training. It was thorough, convenient and enjoyable"
I just wanted to get in touch and thank you for the camera. What a wonderful piece of kit, really well put together and the team were really impressed with it.
Had my camera for just over a year now. Just wanted you to know it has really reignited my interest in dentistry again. I use my camera on almost every patient. It is SO EASY, and so forgiving. Just brilliant. Have just kept the settings exactly as you listed and have no problems. Will probably invest in another identical set up later this year so camera doesn't have to do as many trips up and down stairs!
