Dermal Fillers in Dentistry
ONLINE + WORKSHOP : $2,750
This course has been specifically developed for dentists, by dentists. This course aims to cover the most common applications of the use of Dermal Fillers in dentistry.
This is an advanced skill that will set you apart from most other dentists out there. More and more patients are wanting volume enhancements to achieve a more desirable smile. More of these patients are choosing to see a dentist for this treatment specifically for their lips and perioral regions due to their confidence in the dentist’s knowledge of these areas. This skill draws on the medical and artistic knowledge of the practitioner and it is a very rewarding experience when you can help the patient achieve something they desire.
This course includes both an online and practical component. The online module will need to be completed before attending the practical workshop. The workshop will take place over one day. The aim of this is to take as little time out of your daily schedule and have small trainer:learner ratios to accelerate your learning. The workshop will re-iterate the important theoretical knowledge but most of the time will be spent on direct hands-on approach with consulting, obtaining informed consent and injecting techniques on your model. You will be asked to bring your own models for injecting and dermal fillers will be available for purchase at cost price for use on your models during the workshop. All models will be pre-screened prior to coming for the practical for suitability by our trainer.
By the end of this workshop, you will be ready to start your career in dermal fillers, a truly rewarding journey.
