This 16 hour course is intended to fulfill the requirements of the Massachusetts BORID's “Policy Advisory on the Use of Botulinum Toxins (Botox) and/or Dermal Fillers by Licensed Dentists” and combines online didactic material and a full-day in-person clinical and simulation session.

Participants will review facial esthetic assessment, standardized photographic documentation, anatomy, pharmacology, pathophysiology of facial aging, treatment planning, detailed technique analysis, product breakdown and analysis, strategies for avoidance and management of complications, legislature and liability issues, fee compensation options, and marketing strategies. 

Course Organization:

Module One (Online): Multidisciplinary didactics – The first 8 hours of the course will consist of online didactic material. Participants will be given electronic access to the teaching material, compiled and created by multidisciplinary faculty, and will be expected to review this material closely. Participants will be required to take an online exam in order to demonstrate comprehension of the material, and must pass this exam in order to perform patient care. The online format will allow for more time to digest and absorb the information from the comfort of your home or office.

Module Two (On-Site): Hands-on cadaver and medical models training and live patient treatment. There will be a brief Q&A session, during breakfast, so participants can clarify any possible questions and uncertainties.

Participant Requirements:

  • Be able to provide proof of malpractice insurance
  • Be registered to practice dentistry in Massachusetts (individuals practicing in other states may participate in the course, but cannot engage in live patient care)
  • Be able to provide one patient for hands-on procedures. For any trainees who are not able to bring a patient to treat, there will be a live demonstration by one of the faculty
