Professional Portraits3) Patient's "After" Portraits
To have your case considered for publication, Dear Doctor requires the "after" portrait to be a professional photograph. Send a high resolution jpeg file with a minimum size of 4" x 6" at 300 DPI. If you do not have a professional photo of your patient, we recommend that you ask your patient to visit a local photographer or portrait studio to obtain the requested image. Portrait studios in a local mall or department store are the most economical solution.

Before and After4) "Before" and "After" Closeup Photos
Send high resolution jpeg files of your patient's mouth that clearly illustrate your patient's smile before and after treatment. We use these images to showcase your work in addition to the professional "after" portrait.
