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.
