Since graduating dental school in 1992, Dr. Krieger has been committed to staying on top of the newest and most innovative aspects of dentistry. A fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry and a practicing orthodontist, Dr. Krieger understands the challenges faced by clinicians on a day to day basis.
Having drawn upon a lifelong love of photography, Dr. Krieger sought out the best resources to help him understand the role of clinical images for increased case acceptance. With the arrival of digital technology in the photographic world, Dr. Krieger merged his knowledge of traditional photographic technique with the advantages of digital cameras. The result was the revolutionary “Digital Co-Diagnosis” process, where patients play a much larger role in their dental health choices through better education. The cornerstone of this process is exceptional clinical photography.
Dr. Krieger has worked with numerous consultants and has spent hundreds of hours in business training including “The Dentist as CEO”, year long course at the prestigious University of Washington Business School and another full year at the Schuster Center for Professional Development in Scottsdale Arizona.
Dr. Krieger has presented to tens of thousands of dentists around the world and has been published in textbooks and dental periodicals. He has created two DVDs to assist dentists with clinical photography and has designed a revolutionary set of mirrors and retractors too assist with image capture. Dentistry Today has named him “Top Clinician in Continuing Education” 11 times.
Most importantly, Dr. Krieger believes that in today’s competitive world the orthodontic and dental communities should be collaborative and everyone should contribute to helping one another succeed. His hope is that this blog, and those who contribute to it, will help practices around the world reach their visions when it comes to growing their market share and delivering care to patents.
