Event Details


– October 23 AND 24, 2021

This two-day course will focus on the therapeutic use of botulinum toxin and intraoral dermal fillers for dental practitioners. It will be delivered as a mix of didactic lectures and practical hands-on training using silicone manikins.

The course includes an anatomical study of all muscles, arteries, veins and nerves of the lower face, applications and techniques for using Botulinum Toxin in Dentistry, an overview of injection techniques and how to deal with complications should they arise. 

It will then conclude with a practical, hands-on demonstration of different techniques.


The first day will consist of didactic lectures, followed by a quiz about head and neck anatomy, pitfalls and complications. 


The second day will focus on the practical application of the theoretical learnings from the first day. It will involve demonstrations of various different injection techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to practice on silicone manikins that replicate the skin injections.
