Level 7 Diploma for Dentists

The Level 7 Diploma in Botox & Dermal Fillers is the highest qualification in aesthetic medicine in the UK, an equivalent level to a master’s degree. Although it is not necessary to have your L7Dip to practice, patients are becoming increasingly aware of its importance in distinguishing aesthetics practitioners.

As aesthetic medicine is unregulated in the UK, companies such as Glowday are educating patients on the importance of finding medically trained practitioners, using the L7Dip as part of the measure of excellence.

Getting Started in Aesthetics

Here are the three first steps you need to take to begin administering injectables at your dental practice:

  1. Check your insurance. As a dentist, you already have indemnity to meet the GDC’s requirements, but your existing coverage may not include facial aesthetics. Call your insurance provider to find out what you need to do to ensure you’re fully covered. Sometimes this may be a large add-on, so consider getting dedicated aesthetics insurance which can be more than 15x cheaper.
  2. Enrol on practical training with a reputable provider. Even with your advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and injecting, you will want to attend a course that will give you hands-on training in administering popular injectable treatments. Above, we’ve listed courses that are relevant to aspiring aesthetic dentists.
  3. Start small and keep building. Medical aesthetics is a broad and innovative industry – it can be thrilling to imagine the new technologies you’ll bring into your practice, from devices like lasers to complex treatments like tear troughs. Doing too much, too soon, and not executing it to the best of your abilities, can have a negative effect on your reputation not only as an aesthetics practitioner, but also as a dentist. Be sure to nail down the basics before exploring more advanced techniques.
