Botox courses for dentists

As a dentist, you’re extremely well suited to the aesthetic industry as you’re already trained in manual and complex procedures as well as administering injections and local anaesthetics. Your knowledge of facial musculature, anatomy, vasculature and nerve supply is an added bonus which helps with a transition into the Botox and dermal filler marketplace. This means dentists are suited for non-surgical cosmetic treatments. We provide Botox courses for dentists to facilitate your move into a new career and revenue stream. 

Many dentists have already seen a huge boost to their income by expanding into the sector and while Botox is for cosmetic purposes, it is also FDA certified for treating hyperhidrosis and bruxism. It also enhances the treatment of other dental work like TMJ.

Is it time to take advantage of the beauty boom?

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are growing in popularity
and the aesthetics industry is showing no signs of slowing down – it’s
currently valued at around £2billion and now is the perfect time for you to
join the ranks.

The knowledge and experience that comes with being a dentist
(administering injections, dealing with complex maxillofacial area) are more
than enough to see you through our Foundation Botox & Filler course with a
view to moving onto the more advanced procedures to give you an even bigger
portfolio that you can offer new and existing clients.

New regulations require trained doctors to perform
injectable procedures and, because a dentist can prescribe drugs, Botox can
easily integrate into a dental practice.

Filler and Botox courses for dentists, taught by a dentist

One of the many advantages that you, as a dentist, have over other medical practitioners is that you are more than likely to have established clinics with pre-existing clients.

Dentists don’t need to set up an entirely new practice to enter the field of aesthetics – you can perform aesthetic procedures in your practice which will help your business expand.

Our Botox Training for dentists are led by Dr Hennessy BDS – a renowned dentist in his own right who also brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the aesthetics field.

In fact, Dr Hennessy BDS was one of the first dentists in the UK to be trained in Botox and dermal fillers and has over 20 years’ experience which he will demonstrate throughout the 1-day course.

Dr Hennessy BDS trains dentists along with Mrs Alisha Stonier, RGN NP.

You’ll be provided with an e-learning pack ahead of the training day and when you join us at our Academy in Preston, you’ll spend a day getting to grips to the products and procedures and will benefit from a significant amount of time practising on live models.

The knowledge and hands-on experience provided mean you will be able to treat new aesthetics patients immediately.

Learning how to administer these non-surgical procedures and getting qualified is both quick and inexpensive at the Dr Hennessy Academy.

Our Combined Botox and Dermal Filler Foundation Course, which is the perfect Botox certification course for dentists, only takes one day and is priced at just £795+VAT.

Our courses are recommended by aesthetic product manufacturers such as Galderma and endorsed by all major insurance companies in the field – Cosmetic Insure, Hamilton Fraser

Frequently Asked Questions by Dentists

Botulinum toxin is a prescription only medication. Fully qualified and registered prescribing dentists have the certification required to prescribe Botox. Upon completion of one of our Botox courses, you will then have the knowledge, skill, and qualifications to also handle and administer Botox to patients.

Other medical professionals who have transitioned into aesthetic medicine like nurses and midwives do not have prescribing qualifications, so they need to seek the help of a prescribing individual such as a doctor or a dentist before they can administer Botox. Dentists can therefore form networks with these other aesthetic providers and become their prescriber. This is an easy way to generate extra income without needing to do the work of administering the Botox yourself.

We offer details of prescribers to any non-prescribers that complete our courses.

In some cases, you will be given details of prescribers in your area or companies that can source prescribers for you.

We believe that as a nurse you are the pride of our NHS. We love the work that you do and we think that you deserve more for the blood, sweat and tears that you put into helping the general public.

If you decide that it’s time to be financially compensated for the service that you’ve done for our country then we don’t blame you.

The facial aesthetics industry can provide you with the chance to increase your income by a large margin, as well as offering you more sociable working hours, while letting you use some of the skills that you have cultivated through working for the NHS.

These patients will hopefully become repeat customers and you can make some great friends and meet some lovely people when working as an aesthetic nurse.

During your course we will perform a Starting in Aesthetics talk which will go through all the necessary skills you need to start your own business and give you some advice on the best ways to promote yourself in the industry.
