Botox and Dermal Filler Courses for Dentists & Dental Hygienists
Are you a Dentist or dental hygienist considering attending a Botox and dermal filler course? Our facial aesthetic courses specifically designed for medical professionals like you have been increasing in popularity over the past 15 years as more and more dentists are realising the wealth of benefits attributed to a career in the Aesthetic Industry, particularly with regard to Botox and dermal filler treatments.
Why do Dentists make Successful Aesthetic Practitioners?
As a dentist, you’re great with injections, have an aesthetic eye (particularly if you’ve taken additional cosmetic dentistry courses), and have specialist training in the oral and maxillofacial areas. And unlike most medical professionals, the face is where you spend your whole working day, undergoing Botox and filler training for dentists can open up a whole host of opportunities.
Botox and dermal fillers as well as other facial aesthetic treatments are often described as going “hand in hand” with dentistry.
- The lip and peri-oral area of the face are closely connected to the teeth. Dentists often find that restoring volume to this area of the face with dermal fillers enhances the results of their cosmetic dental work.
- Botox can also assist your non-cosmetic dentistry work i.e. relaxing the muscles and helping with symptoms of patients with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction.
With an expert understanding of facial anatomy, you arguably have a head start over many other medical professionals when it comes to administering these types of facial treatments.
A Dentist’s Success Story in Facial Aesthetics
Dr Olha Vorodukhina came to the UK in 2009 after graduating in Dentistry in Ukraine in 2005.
After making the decision to train in Botox and Dermal Fillers with Cosmetic Courses 8 years ago, Dr Olha has gone from strength to strength. Training in aesthetics not only broadened her knowledge of the facial anatomy resulting in more clientele but also made her into a successful business woman.
Dr Olha now runs two skin clinics, is part of the team of trainers at Cosmetic Courses and still finds time to carry on with her beloved dental work.
“I’m very passionate about aesthetic medicine and enjoy every aspect. I spend a lot of time in initial consultations as I like to educate my patients about the treatment process as well as the causes of their specific concerns. It’s very rewarding to see the results and the difference it makes to people’s lives.”
Benefits of Botox & Dermal Filler Courses for Dentists:
Medical aesthetics is a very rewarding area to work in because you have high levels of control over how much contact time you spend with each patient, the products you use and the techniques you choose for administering them. Ultimately, you benefit from a much improved work-life balance. Other key benefits include:
- Remuneration – The remuneration from a successful aesthetic clinic greatly exceeds that of the NHS. Previous dentists who have attended our facial aesthetic courses have achieved increased incomes by offering Botox treatments to their patients. It has also allowed them to reduce their working hours and spend more time on social activities or marketing their practice.
- Clinic location – It is an easier transition for you as a dentist to move into facial aesthetics as you already work from a functioning clinic and have a client base set up.
- Incorporate into dental check up – The average time between Botox treatments is 4 to 6 months, so the timing is perfect to schedule alongside your patients’ routine dental check-ups.
- Competitive edge – Botox training for dentists gives you a competitive edge: One in four dental practices now offer Botox and dermal filler treatments, to meet the high and increasing demands for these treatments from patients. It is therefore important to keep ahead of your competitors, with continuous high quality facial aesthetic training.
- New clientele – Offering Botox and dermal fillers at your clinic means you may attract a new clientele to your clinic that may not have come to your practice for dental treatments alone.
“If you’re interested in aesthetic dentistry, aesthetic medicine will complete your training perfectly. As you know, when we look at a person, teeth are not the only thing we see. We look at the face as a whole. What could be better than having the knowledge and skills to improve all imperfections. Having very good manual skills, working with injections every day and having good aesthetic perception makes aesthetic medicine a perfect choice for dentists!” – Dr Smolen | Aesthetic Dentist
