A Guide to Accreditation Photography
This photography guide was designed to give you guidance relating to photographic requirements for an AACD Accreditation exam presentation. AACD Accreditation is a challenging and rewarding goal and should be considered an incredible learning experience as well. As you refine your photographic technique, you will also be reviewing and critiquing your dentistry. The camera enables you to view cases at tremendous magnification, and this provides you with a valuable tool to improve your technique.

The photographic requirements are critical since it is primarily through a image presentation that a candidate demonstrates their ability to achieve excellent clinical results. This guide has been limited to the views required for Accreditation. It may be helpful to have additional views for a patient's complete record to use for diagnosis, case presentation, self-critique, legal records, or even marketing. The required views, however, have been carefully chosen to provide an effective overview of each case as well as ensure consistency in the examination process. For Accreditation presentation you should only present the required views, except for the case chosen to be your technique case, which will require the specific additional views as discussed in the "AACD Accreditation Guidelines & Protocol for Dentists."
