Who is the course for?
No previous knowledge is necessary, but there will be certain requirements in terms of equipment necessary to complete the course - particularly access to a digital SLR camera. Detailed advice on choosing a camera will be given at the start of the course, but if you’re keen to get a head start, then you can download Equipment Recommendations (PDF, 232k).
The course is designed to be of interest and applicable to all members of the dental team.
Time spent by UK dental professionals on this course will count as non-verifiable CPD.
