“I’ve gotta tell you the greatest news ever,” she says. “Dentists are now giving out Botox.” The audience chuckles as Kelly exclaims, “I think I’m ready to have my teeth cleaned!” Dentists will offer both Botox and Juvederm treatments in addition to more traditional dental procedures, she says.
“I like Juvederm,” Regis replies matter-of-factly. Then he changes his mind: “It’s a terrible name isn’t it, Juvederm? Oh, I don’t want any derms in me!” Reading from the news story, Kelly playfully explains, “It’s a filler for your face, I heard.” Regis thinks it sounds pretty convenient to get a cosmetic procedure at the dentist. “My teeth feel dirty,” Kelly says.
Dr. Malcmacher’s comments “What is amazing is this is not unusual at all to Kelly or anyone else. In this day and age, when just about every other healthcare professional like nurses and estheticians are delivering Botox, this is a perfect fit for dentists and it shows that consumers readily accept that as well.”
