About this Event

“When The Pictures Really Matter” is an innovative photography course specially created for dentists by Dr. Eduardo De Aguiar and Dr. Jesus Ostos. The course aims to train dentists on how to effectively apply state-of-the-art photography and editing techniques to the areas of marketing, innovation, self-evaluation, and legal matters. The main goal is to inspire dentists and teach them how to use photography as a powerful tool to energize and support the success of their practice. During the execution of the course, the instructors show, explain and recommend the use of photographic and computer equipment, as well as numerous accessories to achieve the objectives. With great success, this course has been taught in countries like the United States, Australia, Argentina, Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, United Kingdom, Kingdom of Bahrein, Kuwait, Peru, UAE and Venezuela.
