From July 1st, 2023, new rules around the use of facial injectable treatments took effect in Australia, coinciding with the introduction of new, industry-leading, private practical training by AADFA.

Private, 1-on-1 training as standard.

Since AADFA first introduced the award-winning, “health-based”, Botox concept and training in dento-facial aesthetics back in 2009, the practices and patients of thousands of Australian Dentists have benefitted greatly from the opportunity to offer skin health and rejuvenation services alongside traditional dentistry. 

Now, as new rules around education, patient consultation and treatment delivery come into effect, AADFA continues to pioneer the industry, moving beyond out-dated group training sessions to offer private, 1-on-1, practical training for all Dentists, through AADFA Private Atelier Clinics across the country and around the world.  

This new, personalised approach continues to position AADFA trained Dentists as the gold-standard in the industry, providing them with unparalleled levels of support and increasing opportunities for Dentists to excel in this field.

Botox and Dermal Filler are not enough.

In the last few years, we have seen the convergence of two phenomena in the facial aesthetic arena – patient’s increasingly seeking more natural results and the development of safer treatment approaches.  To keep pace with this evolving field, Dentists can no longer simply learn and rely on the old Botox and Dermal Filler treatments.  

AADFA’s Fellowship Pathway of Learning, ensures that Dentists gain a comprehensive knowledge and practical skill in ALL aspects of facial rejuvenation allowing them to achieve results like never before.  For the first time, new regulations now make it abundantly clear that Dentists can no longer simply offer Botox and Filler injections without a comprehensive understanding of the many other treatment options for facial rejuvenation that make the process safer and more effective.  

 While Dentists do not have to provide all the alternate services themselves, in order to gain fully informed consent, it is now a requirement that practitioners must be educated in; understand and discuss all treatment options in the patient consultation, including procedures that can make even basic Botox and Filler treatments safer.  

In line with the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) requirement for practitioners to minimise risk to patients, AADFA Fellows are now the leading operators of portable ultrasound technology in the industry.  Ultrasound Guided procedures allow AADFA Dentists to directly visualise anatomy in real-time and eliminate potential complications like blindness and skin death from dermal filler.

Hundreds of responsible Dentists have already recognised this inherent professional duty, engaging in the AADFA Fellowship to become among the most-highly trained, early adopters of new treatment options, like facial thread lifting procedures, which offer safer, more natural and more effective options for patient care, allowing them to reduce their reliance on older, more dangerous, and more expensive materials like Botox and Filler.

The full AADFA Fellowship pathway involves extensive blended learning, completed at the Dentists’ own pace and supported by an abundance of FREE resources including textbooks, research papers, detailed training manuals and technique videos.  Regular video conferencing allows Dentists to connect with educators who then guide them through their private, 1-on-1 practical patient training sessions in one of AADFA’s modern Atelier clinics.
