“As a physician, I had some trepidation about injection to the face with Botox and dermal fillers. The instruction was great and the supervision was superb. I am now confident in my ability to utilize these procedures at my practice.

“I had a wonderful time at the course and I am so excited to take Level II. In fact, I really plan to work toward my fellowship. I learned so much in the course and everyone was so helpful. Even though I did not bring a patient, I was so grateful that I had an opportunity to treat patients. I think my three days were the best time that I have ever had at a continuing education course.  Thank you again for everything. I had a complete experience.”

Why Choose the American Academy of Facial Esthetics?


  1. We have trained over 8000 dental and medical professionals in botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, bruxism, TMD, orofacial pain, myofascial pain and dental sleep medicine.
  2. Our course is taught by physicians, dentists and healthcare professionals who have practices just like our attendees.  We teach how all of these procedures integrate directly into your office. Healthcare professionals are often disappointed when trained by other medical and dental specialists who do not relate at all to your practice and cannot show you how to integrate the full use of these new skills for both therapeutic and esthetic uses including use in orthodontics, prosthodontics, TMD, orofacial pain, periodontics, implants, esthetic dentistry, family medicine, internal medicine, dermatology and sleep medicine.
  3. We have the most testimonials of any course of this kind – click here for a full list of testimonials.
  4. We are the most comprehensive course in terms of education and practical procedures taught that you will be able to integrate into your practice right away.
  5. We have retrained more physicians and dentists who have taken other courses of this kind because the other courses did not adequately prepare them to integrate this into their medical/dental practice.  Dentists, physicians and nurses who have taken other courses overwhelmingly agreed that they wish they had taken the American Academy of Facial Esthetics course first and saved their time and money.
  6. The American Academy of Facial Esthetics is the best resource for continuing support after the course through our membership organization with its over 8000 members.  This includes resources such as online forums, discussion groups, ask the expert faculty, blogs, and news.  You can upload a picture of a patient and get recommendations on treatment planning and troubleshoot postoperative results to learn how to constantly improve your skills.  The AAFE also offers marketing support such as use of our logo for your office.  We also offer the only professional facial esthetics designation with advanced training, fellowship and mastership status in the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
