Dental Patient Smile Gallery

Display your best work in the optional Smile Gallery on your dental website.

First select from four different layout options, and then upload your own images and add your commentary.

You can first upload your images to your Photos & Media/Images section before using them in your online Smile Gallery.

Remember that it is YOUR responsibility to obtain written consent from anyone whose image you use on your dental practice web portal.

In the “Smile Gallery” area of the “Customize Portals” section, you can decide if you would like to display pictures of your best work.

If you would like to include a Smile Gallery on your web portal, make sure the “Display on Portal” box in the top right-hand corner is checked. Then, use the drop-down menu under “Layout” to choose which page layout style you’d like to use. You might choose to display before photos side-by-side with after photos, or you might want to highlight only the “After” photos, or you may want to include descriptive text. Whatever layout you choose will apply to all the photos in your Smile Gallery, which will be displayed in slideshow format on your web portal.

The Smile Gallery will not show up on your portal until you’ve added photos by clicking “Upload Photo Set.” You’ll be prompted to upload from one to three photos; the uploader will tell you what size they should be to display properly. A very important note: you must obtain written consent from patients before you can use their images on your web portal. This is your responsibility.

In addition to uploading photos, you can also write text or captions that describe more, then click “Save.” You can edit photo sets by clicking the pencil icon, delete them with the trash can icon, and use the arrow keys to re-order them.

Then check out the Smile Gallery on your live web portal. If you don’t like the layout, you can select another layout style. However, since different styles have different photo requirements, you will need to re-upload your photo sets if you change layout styles.

If you would like to copy the Smile Gallery from one of your portals to another, just click the “Copy from another portal” link at the bottom of the page. You can automatically import the entire Smile Gallery with just the click of a button.
