Workflow: Camera & monitor calibration

Question: Dear Dr. McLaren, congratulations on your new blog. I would like you to discuss workflow in reference to calibration of the camera with a custom white balance, the monitor of the dentist and the lab and the printer to have a colour accurate workflow. Thanks for your consideration

Answer: Use a camera that allows a customizable white balance using ³K² setting. I set mine to 5560 in my D800E, ideally images should be viewed on a similar monitor especially dealing with color interpretation, I would calibrate both the lab monitor and the one the dentist uses with the same calibration system, I use X-rite 1 display pro, you can get from B and H photo for 250$, I never use prints for interpreting color in dentistry, it is very difficult and not necessary.
