Should Dentists Offer Botox?


Botox and dermal fillers are two of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments available worldwide and their popularity continues to grow rapidly. As dentists are healthcare professionals along with doctors and nurses, should they be offering Botox in their clinics?

Dentists are the true experts in facial anatomy and physiology as it’s what they deal with on a daily basis, not only that but they inject anaesthetic for a living and therefore know how to make injections as comfortable and quick for the patient as possible.

A big advantage that dentists have in carrying out dermal fillers treatments over any other healthcare professionals such as doctors and nurses is that they are skilled in carrying out dental blocks (anaesthesia) rather than other injectors who may use topical anaesthetic creams and therefore the treatment will be less comfortable. In addition, dentists are already knowledgeable on how to deal with adverse reactions in this area.

As facial aesthetic treatments gain popularity amongst dentists, now is the time to recognise them as specialists in oral and maxillofacial areas with a deep understanding of facial structures, muscles etc. With the highest standard of medical aesthetic training in this area delivered by expert tutors, at MATA we know that as a dentist you will benefit greatly from our Botox and Dermal Filler courses, learn quickly and feel confident in carrying out treatments on completion of your course.
