Why Choose a Dentist as Your BOTOX® Provider?

Our experienced dentists have provided BOTOX® Cosmetic to numerous patients. Dr. Jarrod Cornehl has completed specialized BOTOX® and dermal filler training, and his educational background was intensively focused on facial areas. It is for these reasons and others that you should consider a dentist when choosing a BOTOX® provider.

The main takeaway is to ensure your provider has proper experience and training. Please read below for more info, and give the DENTAL STUDIO in San Francisco a call to arrange a BOTOX® consultation: 415-392-5025.

Choosing Facial Specialists To Provide BOTOX® Cosmetic

You may think that injectables like BOTOX® are confined to the realm of plastic surgery offices. Not so fast! In fact, many types of professionals offer these injections, including ones you may have never associated with facial aesthetics, like podiatrists! Keep this in mind: Whoever you choose for BOTOX® should be properly trained in the injections and properly educated in facial anatomy.

Dentists are in fact an ideal provider for BOTOX® given the following qualifications:

1. Extensive training in facial anatomy.

As part of their higher education, dentists intensively study the oral, peri-oral and maxillofacial areas. That means they have a nuanced understanding of the anatomy of the mouth and entire face from the forehead to the chin. They understand facial musculature and movement, as well as the relationships between bones, muscles, ligaments and blood vessels. They are facial specialists.

2. Extensive BOTOX® Cosmetic training.

Although dentists have an ideal foundation related to facial anatomy, that doesn’t mean any dentist is ready to provide BOTOX® with their dental training alone. You should look for a provider who has completed additional training specific to this injectable.

Dr. Cornehl has committed himself fully to this type of training. Recently, he completed the Level 3 Master Injector Course of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE). He attended the 2018 Aesthetic Symposium of the International Academy of Facial Aesthetics (IAFA) this year. In the past, he has trained with several certifying organizations, including DENTOX and DentaSpa. Please give our staff a call to learn more about his credentials.

3. Extensive experience performing procedures and injections in the facial, peri-oral and maxillofacial areas.

Dentists treat and operate on facial areas routinely. Examples include wisdom tooth extraction, dental implant placement, gum grafting and TMJ treatment. Some of these procedures can be invasive and require in-depth understanding of facial anatomy. While they still need training specific to BOTOX®, this experience with facial procedures means they have an ideal foundation upon which to build.
