The Oregon State Dental Board permits dentists to use facial injectables on patients if they’ve been trained through an accredited program and meet rigorous education requirements. Dentists have extensive training on oral and facial anatomy, health, and function, as well as in depth working knowledge of the anatomy and muscle structure of the face. Because of this expertise, dentists with proper training are ideally positioned to offer facial injectable treatments with precision and optimal outcomes. In fact, a dentist should be your first choice when you are considering Botox or dermal fillers because:
▪️Dentists have more facial anatomy training than most other medical professionals and significantly more training than day spa estheticians.
▪️Dentists are specially trained to focus on symmetry and cosmetic/aesthetic results with keen attention to detail.
▪️Dentists can diagnose and treat bruxism, teeth clenching, and facial pain issues with therapeutic injectables.
▪️Dentists are experts at administering virtually painless oral and facial injections.
