The main purpose of dental photography is documentation. As much information as possible needs to be recorded under reproducible conditions. There must be standardization of the clinical camera, associated equipment, format, and light- ing of the intra- and extraoral views used in dental photography. The standards described in the 1980s by Wolfgang 1 are still valid, but they need to be updated and adapted to align with new technologies and procedures.
