The Botox & Fillers Course

Course Description

The Complete Botox Course for Practice Integration. 

The Midwest Implant Institute is, as always, thinking outside of the box. We have gathered a team of dental specialists, a human anatomy PhD and a facial plastic surgeon to develop this course. Together our group has developed a one day Botox and facial filler course that cannot be rivaled. The head and neck review alone is worth the time and investment you have made. You will review the muscles of facial expressions along with the muscles of mastication and how they relate to everyday dentistry. You will be surprised with this information and be confident with providing Botox and facial fillers for your patients in your practice immediately. 

You will receive lecture material and hands on training from the team and receive immediate feedback from your over the shoulder instructor. The history of Botox, where it has been and where Botox is going to be in the future. Practical applications for Botox in regards to myofacial pain, TMJ appliance therapy and migraine headache therapy. As the need for implant dentistry is ever increasing; so will the need for managing the muscles of mastication and their force of contraction. Even the most compliant patient will lose out to the hyperactivity of the muscles of mastication and so will the implant dentistry. Learn how to manage these recurring problems with the use of Botox therapies within your dental practice. 

Our team trains dentists real dental uses for Botox and dermal fillers. Learn how to smooth those annoying folds and grooves around the nose and lips with dermal fillers. These procedures are easy to learn and as dentists we need to provide these services to our patients within the scope of our state licensure. The manner in which our staff teaches is entertaining and informative. We are approachable and we encourage student interaction during the training sessions. We want all dentists to be excited about their new training and confident to implement what you have learned.
