Below is a small sample of dental photos I’ve taken of Arizona dentists, dental team members, and dental students at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ASDOH) in Mesa, Arizona, and Midwestern University (MWU) in Glendale, Arizona. (I’ve taken thousands since 2010.)
While working at the Arizona Dental Association as manager of communications and managing editor, I’ve had the honor to photograph, interview, and video record hundreds of dentists in Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and just about everywhere in between. Dentists are great, aren’t they?
If you’re in the dental profession here in the Phoenix Metro area, peruse the images below — I’ll bet you recognize some Arizona dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants!
If you’re considering a marketing video for your dental practice, see the over 75 marketing dentist videos I’ve filmed. Ready to have a video filmed for the practice, but you need to find the right videographer? See why you should consider me to film your dental marketing video.
Admittedly, I am still a lay person as it relates to dentistry. Sure, I know the difference between the buccal, occlusal, and lingual surface of the tooth (et. al.), but I admire just how much training and intelligence it takes to be a knowledgeable dentist, dental hygienist, dental assistant, or front office administrator. I am not even close to knowing what you professionals know. But, I’ve seen a positive effect my “limited” dental knowledge has on the project, the dentist, and the team:
Yes, I know how to drive in patients. That’s the main reason why dental practices hire me.
I don’t have to learn how to film, photograph, light, or move around in a tight dental operatory. I’ve filmed so many videos in operatories, I can do it with my eyes closed (that’s probably not a good idea though).
I’ve found dental teams are apprehensive about an outside film crew coming into their space and asking them to “act natural.” And, I suppose dental team members are rightfully fearful they’ll get stuck with an egotistical, demanding, and unpleasant video director, who makes everyone miserable. That type is out there. However, once I chat with the team for a while, they do something amazing: They relax and they have fun. Once they recognize I thoroughly know and respect the dental profession, the photo shoot or video shoot becomes a fun and stress-free, team-building activity for everyone.
PS—So, who’s the only videographer in Arizona who knows dentistry better than me? That would be Dr. Epperson. He was a videographer who became a dentist. He’s definitely got me beat!
