Why should I have Botox or Juvederm treatments by a dentist?

Dentists are “smile specialists.” We are trained to look at the proportions of your entire face in order to create a beautiful smile, and no other professional is better trained in the relationship of the teeth to the lips.

Cosmetic dentistry and smile design are about balance and subtle changes that make the results appear natural.

Dentists are comfortable with injections as part of daily practice, and we understand facial musculature and its relationship to the TMJs and occlusion.  The patented protocol for using Botox to treat TMJ dysfunction was developed by a dentist who personally trained our dentists.
