California dentists can now perform Botox and dermal filler procedures.
The time has come for California dentists to get into Botox and dermal fillers for dental esthetic and dental therapeutic uses. Here is the history and the latest of what took place at this week’s California dental board meeting:
I was asked in my capacity as President of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to present to the Dental Board of California in August of this year at which time I gave them an overview of the use and integration of Botox and dermal fillers in dentistry. That began a discussion on the scope of dental practice in CA as defined by their dental practice act, which was then continued at this week’s CA state board meeting.
