Hands-on Workshop

Injection Workshop +
Optional Online Component

The online component (included with workshop registration) is intended as background to Botox and fillers for clinicians who are new to these products. It covers the essential pharmacology, physiology and indications in more detail to help practitioners take full advantage of the clinical applications of these agents. On completion you can download a certificate for 3 hours of CE. Doing the online lessons will fully prepare you for the hands-on workshop.

At the Workshop

What to expect

During the morning we will review essential pharmacology, physiology, anatomy and the business of Botox/fillers.  You will practice Botox reconstitution, learn to choose the ‘right’ patients, identify injection landmarks, avoid pitfalls and deal with complications. After lunch you will practice injecting for conditions such as TMD, gummy smiles, secondary headaches, myofascial and neuropathic pain. You will ‘see’ the underlying anatomy using colour Doppler ultrasound. You will learn Botox techniques and dosing protocols to maintain a good cosmetic result when injecting for these therapeutic indications in cosmetically sensitive areas.

The RCDSO allows dentists to inject fillers in the lips for cosmetic purposes. We will teach you to analyse your patients’ lips to optimize facial balance and aesthetics. You will master injection techniques to provide increased volume, improved definition and rejuvenation of aging lips to compliment the smile.

Our student to instructor ratio is typically 5:1 and there is ample opportunity for one on one learning. All our graduates receive a Certificate of Completion (having met the educational requirements set out by the RCDSO) We will also forward your name to Allergan which allows you to order product directly from them (the only way for dentists to get filler in Ontario).

You may bring a couple of patients or staff members to inject. Staff members are also eligible for CE credit and may attend the afternoon at no cost, but must be registered by their dentist (please note we will not accept other dentists as ‘staff members’ or ‘patients’). We will provide enough Botox and Juvederm for you to gain experience in both types of injection. Many participants wish to be injected themselves which would be done by fellow participants under supervision.

Participants must have malpractice coverage in Ontario.

Course starts at:
8:30 AM and finishes at 5:00 PM
Participants must pre-register
(no on-site registration)

Additional Information

Included in the workshop tuition is access to the online component, a syllabus, consent and treatment forms for your practice, supply list and where to buy, BotoxR and JuvedermR to inject your patients as well as lunch and refreshments.

We recommend that participants bring staff members or patients to inject.* It is important that you be able to follow the progress of your treatment. Your staff members are also your best patient teaching and marketing tool. In situations where it is not possible for participants to bring a live subject, injections can be done on each other or patients are often shared between participants. We will do our best to ensure that each participant is afforded the opportunity to practice each kind of injection. After successful demonstration of techniques you will receive a certificate, which attests that you have met the RCDSO educational guidelines.

*Please note that we will not accept another dentist as a ‘staff member’ or ‘patient’.

Refresher Course

This hands-on refresher opportunity is aimed at previous workshop graduates who’s injection skills have become rusty. We have set aside a very small number of spots in the regular workshop at a significantly reduced cost. Participants can come for either the full day or just the clinical portion and sharpen their skills. Please contact us for details and availability.
