The Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) or Dental Surgery (DDS) is not merely a barber surgeon. As dentists, we possess an intimate knowledge of head and neck anatomy, disease processes and craniofacial conditions. In fact, we have surgical experience that surpasses many other health care professionals.
Listen as Timothy A Hess, DDS, MAGD, shows how the administration of neurotoxins and dermal fillers for therapeutic & aesthetics procedures of the head and neck is a natural extension of the dentist’s skill set.
- A review of the dentist’s existing knowledge of head and neck anatomy to illustrate why we are the logical choice as a clinician to address some facial pain & aesthetic concerns.
- A brief discussion of physical changes that occur to the hard and soft tissues of the head and neck over time.
- An introduction to common oral medicine therapies and aesthetic applications of Botulinum toxin in dentistry.
