Perfecting your Smile – Dental Illustrations for Book Publication
We were commissioned by Dr. Edward Givens a prosthodontist dental surgeon from San Diego, California. Dr. Givens has his own practise and he advertises using his website http://www.perfectingyoursmile.net/Home.html.
Dr. Givens specialises in implant surgery, implant supported prosthesis and complex reconstructive therapy. Keen to extend his knowledge in this area and in pursuit of encouraging oral health Dr. Givens has also published articles relating to oral health.
Our role was to create bespoke illustrations for a book publication and written by Dr. Edward Givens the book is called Perfecting Your Smile. The books aim is to provide comprehensive information on a wealth of important topics related to oral health care.
One of the key reasons why medical illustrators are commissioned is because they can work from a written brief and create an illustration that can help visually interpret what is being described in the text. We were asked to create a series of dental illustrations that would help explain aspects of dental surgery and the process for implant surgery. The illustrations were sketched in pencil first for feedback after which they were illustrated in our usual full colour realism style.
