With the development of digital photography it has become possible to better share material with patients. The digital age has allowed for the first time visualization of concerns that could not be seen in a mirror at home. All of the concerns of a dentist can be displayed for evaluation by the patient. The digital age has put the patient in charge and allowed a codiagnostic sharing of information so treatment can be guided and directed by informed patients. Well-informed patients make good decisions and allow a partnership approach to care.
