Botox and Dermal Filler Training for Dental Therapists

As an experienced Dental Therapist, you’ll find that a lot of your qualities and knowledge can be transferred away from dentistry and into the lucrative and equally rewarding aesthetics industry.

Whether you’re considering moving into a new career as a Botox practitioner in a clinic or setting up your own aesthetics business, we specialise in delivering foundation and advanced level training for Botox and dermal fillers.

Can a Dental Therapist do Botox?

Aesthetics is an exciting line of work that can introduce greater variety into your day and increase your income.

With the fast-growing demand for aesthetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, right now is a great time to add to your portfolio of skills and become qualified to administer these procedures.

As a dental therapist, you already have many of the skill sets required for this work. With your high standards of medical training, you are currently in the perfect position to undertake a one-day course that puts you in a position to profit from the medical aesthetics market.

Whether you’re currently working in the NHS or private practice, you’re eligible for the training courses offered at Dr Hennessy Cosmetic Academy.

And, with many dentists themselves now training and running clinics alongside their dental practice, there are some amazing opportunities to work with a dentist who can consult and prescribe Botox for your patients.

Why should Dental Therapists train in aesthetics?

In order to become a qualified Dental Therapist you will have undergone a great deal of training and have an extensive, working knowledge of head and neck anatomy.

It’s not just your knowledge that stands you in good stead to make the change, a good Dental Therapist will also have exceptional patience, excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

Your blend of empathy along with proficient, highly technical clinical skills and a sound understanding of health and safety, confidentiality and organisational skills also contribute to the skillset needed to underpin any good aesthetics practice.  

You will also have the ability and experience of injecting and performing a range of non-surgical treatments which make you well placed to launch a successful career in aesthetics.

In the past it has been difficult for Dental Therapists to break into the field as many training companies would not accept you and some insurers wouldn’t cover you, we are delighted to be able to offer our extensive training programmes and can point you in the direction of relevant and reputable companies who will offer indemnity insurance.

So, whether you choose to work part-time alongside your existing job or make a full-time change, we will give you the theory, hands on experience and business support you need to start practicing as soon as you leave our Academy.
