Dentist and Medical Photograph

The following message is from Dr. Nakamura.
Please read the message while brushing your teeth.


There is a word named EBM (Evidence Based Medicine).
It is a medical treatment of based on a firm fact.
As a dentist the oral photograph is the best way to explain the fact to the patient. And, it is simple and easy for the patient to understand it.

I take patient's oral photograph when the patient visits my clinic for the first time. And, I take patient's oral photograph when treatment ends.
Long time passes away, when the same patient visits my clinic again I take patient's oral photograph of course.
Basically, I am taking the oral photograph in all patients.

The accumulation of the medical record of the fact collected for myself becomes very important for a dentist for children like me.
The magnification fixed lens is important for such a medical recording.
I choose Medical Nikkor 120mm F4 lens.
I don't have the any way of the selection excluding this special lens.

The oral health is very important for people.
Record by oral photograph is more important to keep the oral health.
It is happy for not only dentist but also the patient.
I keep taking the oral photograph for patient's happiness.
I have been succeeding Hippocrates' spirit.

Thank you.

Doctor Takashi Nakamura
