Principles of Botox and its use in the Treatment of TMD, Esthetic Applications, and use of Dermal Fillers‚ÄĒAn Educational Program for Oklahoma Dental Professionals by Oklahoma Dental Professionals

Hands-on Session

July 19-20

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Course Description

This unique program has been designed from the ground up to provide the Oklahoma dental professional with clinical confidence. This will come through the synthesis of exceptional online learning modules and practical in person hands-on training (not ‚Äúhands in pockets‚ÄĚ as you just watch an instructor).¬†

The course will consist of 12 hours didactic content online, followed by 12 hours of hands-on application. This model allows for the student to take their time with the foundational material, reviewing sections as often as desired, and come to the hands-on portion with confidence. With all students adequately prepared in advance, our instructors are able to provide the best hands-on experience, rather than focusing on people in the program who are struggling to understand the fundamentals.

Learning Objectives

After completing the online and hands-on portions of this course students will be able to:

  1. Understand the indications and contraindications of the use of Botox for temporomandibular disorders and facial esthetics
  2. Understand the indications and contraindications for the use of dermal fillers
  3. Learn the clinical techniques for predictable application of botulinum toxin
