The Kodak Dental Digital Photography Kit 290 comes complete with all hardware, software and accessories that dentists need to take, produce, and manage digital pictures of their patients.
The kit is designed for dentists who want to:
- Quickly and easily record visual records of patient teeth and gum structure and color.
- Create professional images to communicate information about cosmetic and restorative procedures and benefits.
"Digital photography has dentists excited, and for good reason," said Jack Retzlaff, digital product line manager, Kodak's dental business. "Today's cameras and inkjet printers promise a fast and easy way for dentists to produce professional patient images."
The Kodak digital photography kit combines state-of-the-art digital camera and inkjet printing technology with software and hardware tailored to dental imaging applications. "It's a seamless and ready-to-use solution," said Retzlaff. "Kodak has already solved all issues around lens type, filters, flash and softwareso dentists don't have to. It's completely tailored to meet dentists' needs."
Everything the Dentist Needs:
The Kodak Dental Digital Photography Kit 290 comes complete with the following components
- Kodak DC290 Zoom Digital Camera featuring 2 megapixel (1792 x 1200) resolution and a 3X optical/2X digital zoom;
- Ring Flash that connects directly to the camera for easy flash synchronizing;
- AC converters and other useful brackets and adapters;
- Kodak Personal Picture Maker PM100 printer for producing photo-quality color prints from the digital camera card or office PC;
- Kodak DMI Inkjet Paper Sample Pack, the highest-quality, non-light-sensitive inkjet paper optimal for printing color or radiographic images;
- Close-up lens kit;
- 16 MB Kodak Picture Card, for storing captured images and transporting them from the camera to the printer or a PC;

- Four Kodak Photolife NiMH Batteries and Kodak Photolife Battery Charger Model K200.
In addition, the kit includes imagEXPLORER and imagEDITOR software from Dicom Imaging Systems Inc. (OTC BB:DCIM.OB). This dental imaging management and enhancement software package enables dentists to perform a number of powerful operations. With this platform and other modules available for purchase, dentists can create before and after pictures of amalgam replacement, veneering and bonding, crown lengthening, orthodontics, cosmetic contouring, tooth whitening and periodontal treatments. The software also supports the organizing, cataloging and storing of images.
Changing Role of Imaging in Dentistry
With the introduction of the Kodak Dental Digital Photography Kit 290, Kodak has marked a significant turning point in dental imaging. The imaging leader has assisted dentists primarily in diagnostic applications. The digital photography kit, however, supports a different role: that of record keeping and communications.
"Dentistry is changing," Retzlaff noted. "Patients expect their dentists to offer more cosmetic and restorative procedures. Dentists need imaging tools to demonstrate their skills and build relationships."
Retzlaff anticipates that the kit will be used for a number of applications. "Dentists will start attaching photographs of their patients to patient records, as a way to associate names with faces," he predicted. Digital photographs will also be used to document procedures for insurance claims.
And, Retzlaff added, dentists will use the kit for building case presentations. "When you can show a patient what he or she will look like with whiter, straighter teeth, you raise their comfort level," he said. "You are no longer asking them to make a decision without really knowing the outcome."
The Kodak Dental Digital Photography Kit 290 is available worldwide through leading providers of dental supplies.
Kodak's dental products business is a worldwide leader in imaging capture and output solutions for dental practitioners. The dental products business manufactures intraoral and extraoral dental imaging films and processing chemistry; medical inkjet printers, inks and papers; digital cameras for dental applications; COOK-WAITE brand anesthetics; and a variety of related products and services.
