Today, patients are not just turning to dentists for health reasons, but also for many cosmetic dental procedures. Patients are wanting to look and feel younger, therefore dentists are in search of reputable aesthetic medicine training, to fully meet patient needs and grow their practice. Through a combination of Botox® injections and dermal fillers, dentists are not only improving their patients’ smiles but are also able to significantly enhance the overall profitability of their practice. Aesthetic training for dentists, which includes Botox® training courses, is a key part of any successful aesthetic dental practice.
According to statistics, dental Botox treatments are growing at a fast rate of 5% to 10% annually, and many dental patients in addition to cosmetic dentistry are searching for “Botox dentist” or “Botox dentists” on the internet. Also, according to the American Bureau of Labour Statistics, the employment of dentists will grow 18 % from 2014 to 2024 as the demand for cosmetic dental services is on the rise.
To help dentists effectively manage this growing trend and grow their practice, organizations like the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) are offering Botox training courses, dermal filler training, and aesthetic business training.
Botox Training for Dentists is the First Step
Botox is a “must have” in every dental practice if you want to be able to treat a wide variety of oral conditions as well as offer many cosmetic and therapeutic benefits. Botox has the advantage of being the most minimally invasive of procedures requested, making it very desirable and the first choice of many. There are many FDA approved botulinum toxins including Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau, however, Botox is most popular. If you are going to add aesthetic dentistry to your practice, your first step is to attain solid knowledge of these procedures by knowing how to perform Botox® injections and obtaining a Botox certification for dentists. To be sure that you are receiving the best quality training, you want to choose Botox courses that are led by industry experts and ensure that hands-on experience is included.

The IAPAM offers comprehensive, hands-on, physician-led Botox Training courses through its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium. Take advantage of this growing trend and successfully capture a portion of this opportunity. Botox in dentistry is a natural progression. To showcase the financial potential that aesthetic dentistry has, Catherine Maley, a frequent contributor to the IAPAM and author of Your Aesthetic Practice (www.YourAestheticPractice.com) comments that a dentist sees “on average 8 dental patients per day. Pareto’s Law of 80/20 rule says that 20% will convert to aesthetics if asked.
Even though Botox is considered to be the first choice of many, it is not the most profitable aesthetic procedure. If you want to successfully grow your practice and increase your profitability, you want to provide your patients with not only Botox treatments but also other complimentary aesthetic procedures such as dermal filler injections. The IAPAM provides various aesthetic training for dentists that help dental practices become successful in, not only Botox procedures, but also all other procedures in cosmetic dentistry.
