Maybe you’ve thought about doing Botox or dermal fillers, but you don’t feel super  comfortable about having someone without a medical degree poking around your face. Maybe you’re interested but you feel a bit shy about going somewhere where you end up feeling obligated to go ahead with the procedure(s) when you were just on a fact-finding mission. Perhaps you don’t want to be pressured into more invasive services.

Have you thought about talking to your dentist about Botox treatment? While they may not be the first professional to come to mind, some dentists (like our experts at Winning Smile Dental Group) have received the advanced training needed to perform the placement of Botox and dermal fillers. Keep reading to learn why you should consider getting Botox at a dental office.

Low Pressure

Although plastic surgeons are other providers who can give Botox injections, they also offer more invasive and expensive procedures that they may try to push you toward. Dentists, on the other hand, won’t do anything crazy to your face, just something to enhance your natural beauty.

Expertise in Oral Structures

Dentists have a deep understanding of facial anatomy and structure, having spent even more time on head and neck anatomy than medical students. You might say it’s dentists’ super power!


You know you are already supposed to see your dentist at least twice every year, which means you probably have formed a relationship over time. Especially if you are undergoing other cosmetic work on your smile, such as porcelain veneers or whitening, it saves you time and effort to get Botox from the same team you already know and trust.

Other Valuable Uses for Botox

Fun fact: Botox (botulinum toxin type A is the chemical name) is not just for wrinkles; it can be used to relieve chronic tension headaches or jaw pain caused by clenching or grinding the teeth. Administered in the right area of the face, it can help restore function as well as alleviate pain.

Ultimately, your trusted dentist can help you achieve the results you want. The next time you come in to Winning Smile Dental, please feel free to ask whatever questions you might have. We always welcome questions and enjoy having well-informed patients!
