CLEVELAND, Ohio--The AAFE has announced a partnership with the ADA to offer a presession patient course for dental professionals in the use of Botox for esthetic and therapeutic treatments.

Attendees can expect hands-on learning in techniques using noninvasive treatments for management of TMJ dysfunction, headaches, and dental and facial esthetics.

AAFE President Dr. Louis Malcmacher said, “The American Academy of Facial Esthetics is proud to partner with the ADA on the live patient precourse live patient session, Botox Therapeutics and Esthetics for Every Dental Practice, at the upcoming ADA Annual Session.

"This course will teach dentists how to properly evaluate and treat patients with botulinum toxin (Botox) for dental/facial esthetics and facial pain treatment. The ADA Council on Annual Sessions continues to be a leader in dental continuing education, and the AAFE is thrilled to have been chosen as a trusted CE partner.”

The AAFE has trained nearly 7,000 dental professionals in noninvasive dental esthetics and therapeutics using botulinum toxin and dermal fillers.

Dr. Gregory J. Peppes, ADA member and program chair, described the partnership.

“The ADA Council on Annual Sessions has received a lot of interest in Botox from members and patients," he said. "Who better to partner with than the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, the leader in training dentists and health professionals in nonsurgical, noninvasive facial esthetic techniques?”
