As we near the end of National Smile Month, it’s important to look at all the ways in which dentists can enhance their patients’ smile. Although cosmetic dentistry has boomed in the last five years, adding aesthetic injectable treatments such as Botox® and dermal filler to your range of treatments can allow you to take a holistic approach to smile transformations; enhancing not only your patients teeth, but smoothing, volumising and defining the facial structures around the mouth.
Why Dentists should Train in Aesthetic Injectables
Dentists are uniquely placed for success both in aesthetics injectables training and within the medical aesthetics industry. As trained injectors with daily experience of treating sensitive areas, alongside having high levels of manual dexterity in restricted spaces; dentists possess skills that are highly transferable to aesthetic injectable practice. This is only enhanced by their already advanced knowledge of facial anatomy. Furthermore, a dentist already possesses the perfect clinical space to practice Botox® and dermal fillers and an existing private client base already primed for aesthetic treatment through cosmetic dentistry.
The Benefits of Training in Aesthetics for Dentists
Training in medical aesthetics and adding injectable therapies such as Botox® and dermal fillers to your existing range of treatments can come with a variety of benefits for your clinic. Expanding into aesthetic treatment will encourage patient retention; with patients returning to the clinic on a more frequent basis for repeat injections and so remaining familiar and impressed with your practice. It can also give your clinic an edge by offering a wider treatment range than your competitors, such as Botox® for bruxism and gummy smiles or dermal fillers for smile and marionette lines or for lips. Adding these treatments can also attract new clientele to your clinic, further enhancing your income potential.

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.
