Aesthetics & 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.

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.

Aesthetic training 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 Courses 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.

Advanced aesthetics training for dentists in the UK

Our combined foundation course in Botox and dermal fillers is a great entry point to the aesthetics industry but we have plenty of opportunities to upskill in order to provide even more services for your clients.

Lip fillers are one of the most popular treatments and we offer a comprehensive Lips and Local Anaesthesia course which is accessible once you have passed your foundation level.

If you’re a dentist already trained in some popular aesthetic treatments and you wish to learn more, then we also teach other advanced techniques at the Academy, such as:

·       Hyperhidrosis

·       Scar correction

·       Brow lifting

·       Jawline definition

You can choose between our Advanced Aesthetic Training Course or our Advanced Cannula Training Course.

Or, if you would like to gain a unique understanding of how aesthetic treatments are best incorporated into a clinic, we run special observation evenings that afford an insight into the way that Dr Hennessy BDS works.

We even offer bespoke one-to-one training.

This is a course that can be completely tailored to your current level of knowledge and experience to ensure that you achieve your personal training aims.

Every one of our aesthetic training courses has been certified for the appropriate number of CPD points.

Add this to our ongoing business support and you will leave the Academy with a head-start in business and ready to take full financial advantage of what is now a very lucrative market.

For more information about any of our aesthetic training, or to book your place on a course today, give us a call on 01704 567557.

We look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Dentists are already very experienced injectors, even more so than doctors and nurses. This means that you will likely breeze through beginner Botox courses, especially when you are learning from industry experts like Dr Stephen Hennessy. You will be able to use your skill and experience to complete more advanced Botox courses and stand out in the aesthetic industry.

At the end of the day, it will be a great way for you to increase the number of services that you offer your patients and open your clinic up to broader revenue streams. What’s more, with the increasing number of dentists currently either knowing or learning how to administer Botox, you don’t want to be the only one left behind by not being Botox certified.

Yes! This is another reason why dentists are so naturally well suited to administering Botox and performing aesthetic medicine.

If you work privately then you will likely already have your own practice and can change your marketing and promotions to include your new aesthetic services accordingly. With the way that dentists work, you will have a steady stream of clients who come to see you routinely every few months. This fits perfectly with the spacing required between Botox and filler appointments.

If your clients are coming to you anyway, then they will be more inclined to make use of the aesthetic services that you offer. Especially if they were potentially planning to go elsewhere for Botox initially.

Don’t let us tell you how to do your job, but there are industry-known facts regarding Botox and its relationship with the maxillofacial muscles.

As you are no doubt aware, if a patient has tension or pain in the areas around the mouth, then this can lead to headaches and earaches.  Botox can be an effective way to treat the cause of these symptoms and relieve pressure in the maxillofacial muscles quickly and easily.

If you have patients who have recently received dentures, or patients who are suffering from bruxism or TMD, then Botox can help them too by relaxing the muscles around the mouth and training them to operate in a new way over time.

There are other situations where Botox can be a beneficial tool in your arsenal as a dentist when treating a patient’s problems. You will be able to attend advanced Botox courses too if you want to further your knowledge in this area even more.
