- Taking Orthodontic Photos at Home
While our orthodontic office is closed, we ask our patients to do us a huge favor and email us their progress photos from home. These pictures will be incredibly helpful for us to keep track of your treatment while we are unable to physically have you in our office.
Here's what you need: two spoons, your phone camera, good lighting, a friend or family member (or self timer), and a good sense of humor. You're going to look a little silly taking these. Don't worry, we've seen it all.
Head to the link below for a short video on how to take your pictures:
Take the five pictures as they appear below:
It is important to keep your lips away from your face as best as you can. Take pictures of your teeth straight on like the photos above (no weird angles). Finally, make sure you're biting down all the way on your back teeth.
Once you have your five pictures ready, email them to us at [email protected] and Dr. Shung will look at them and provide feedback within one business day.
You can do it! We believe in you! Hey, if you're really good at it, you may have a job with us once we reopen 🙂
