Would you like to put years of dental training and hard work into an industry where you could more than double your current income? …If the answer is yes, then read on to discover how we can help you train and work in an industry worth over £2 billion annually, and is crying out for highly qualified trained Aesthetic professionals.
There are many reasons why dentists should add facial aesthetics such as Injectables and Dermal filler treatments to their cosmetic services. Many dentists enjoy their jobs but NHS restructuring and targets can sometimes limit autonomy, job satisfaction and how much can be offered to their patients. We often hear from our delegates that many also want better job security, flexibilility and better standards of pay and recognition for their efforts.
At Derma Medical we understand that dentists work on high profitability per hour so we provide bespoke solutions to help dentists achieve success without compromising their present income potential.
Our mission is to help dental professionals across the UK achieve many of the things they are missing in their current job roles.
If you want to work in an environment where you are properly rewarded for your skills, efforts and knowledge, we believe the Medical Aesthetics industry is the best opportunity for any UK dentist.
At Derma Medical, we have trained many dentists in this field wanting to create the lifestyle they have always dreamed of. Here are the top 6 benefits reported by dentists who have trained with us and are now working in this industry:
It’s well-known the private sector pays well. Income from aesthetic practice can far exceed that of the NHS with a significantly less time investment. Hour-for-hour as an Aesthetic dentist (either self-employed or working for a clinic), you can expect to earn far more than you would as an NHS dentist. Due to the nature of this growing industry it is genuinely possible to (more than) double your current NHS salary administering cosmetic injectable treatments on a regular basis.
Many of our trainees have gone on to open their very own successful practices, and several have left their NHS job in the process! The increased income generated in Aesthetics has allowed many dentists to reduce working hours, free-up more time and pay back the large debts of many years of dental school earlier.
Dentists are very well suited to this field because they have good transferable skills. Many dentists are already practically trained in several intricate manually dextrous procedures as well as administering therapeutic injectables and local anaesthetics. Dentists are also anatomically trained, with good knowledge of facial musculature, vasculature and nerve supply. Injectables and dermal fillers go ‘hand-in-hand’ with dentistry and these cosmetic injectables are simple extensions of the minimally invasive procedures and a large part of today’s cosmetic dentistry.
Although mainly cosmetic, some injectables can be used for medical use such as treatments of Hyperhidrosis and Bruxism. The injectable skills you will learn on our courses can also be used to enhance the results of other cosmetic dental work, as well as assist with other non-cosmetic issues such as TMJ dysfunction. Many dentists report it being a great addition to their already vast CV of clinical skills, and with newer minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures being discovered, now is a great time to be investing in these acquired skills.
A major advantage many dentists have for getting into the aesthetics industry is that they often have an established functioning clinic with a pre-existing client base set-up. The commonest feedback we have received from our dental delegates is therefore the ease of transition/incorporation of facial aesthetics into their existing practice. Moreover, by offering cosmetic Injectables and Dermal filler treatments, dentists can attract new clientele to their practice to boost business. What’s best is that routine dental check-ups are carried out every 4-6 months, the average time duration between injectable treatments- a perfect time to schedule their next top-up! Statistics show that 1 in 4 dental practices now offer cosmetic injectable treatments to meet this high demand, so a small investment in 1 weekend of facial aesthetic training can help you stay ahead of your competitors.
In this industry, dentists have full control of their own work/life balance. The flexibility of this career enables dentists to choose when and how often they would like to work (and earn). Many of the dentists we have trained have reported enjoying a much better quality of life- working more sociable hours with happier, more satisfied patients. In comparison to their NHS jobs, many have also highlighted the increased job satisfaction that results from having more autonomy in decision-making in a less-pressured and environment.
At Derma Medical, we have helped many dentists seek alternative or additional, medical-related routes of employment while still utilising their clinical skills. For those already in training or in established practice, aesthetic work can be taken on alongside their existing job. Several of our dental delegates undertake private aesthetic work at weekends, evenings or annual leave with large cosmetic corporates. After completion of aesthetic training, dentists have the ability and freedom to open their own cosmetic company or work for an existing one.
Current changes in the NHS have seen many services directed into the private sector. Amongst these are the popular Axillary hyperhidrosis treatments for excessive sweating or the well-known Obagi prescription-strength programmes for acne scarring and pigmentation. Some of our delegates have worked in the NHS and due to financial cuts (seen as luxuries vs necessities) have had to refer many patients elsewhere for private treatments. Why not be the one offering these highly requested treatments instead of referring them onto someone else?
Our 2 day combined course teaches you all 18 common Injectables and Dermal Filler treatments allowing you to start practicing immediately. After this initial weekend you can further your training with our Masterclasses or Level 7 Certificate in Cosmetic Injectables.
You will receive training certificates allowing you to get cosmetic indemnity insurance with either of the 2 leading insurers – Hamilton Fraser and Cosmetic Insure. Both recognise our course and are able to offer cover to Doctors trained by us.
As a prescribing doctor you can practice independently. F1 doctors who cannot yet prescribe can buddy up with local prescriber or use a prescriber service and are still able to train and administer Injectables and Dermal Fillers.
Aesthetic Doctors are highly sort after by cosmetic clinics and you will find many part and full time job opportunities available. We will give you an exclusive list of job opportunities on the course to help you find work straight after training.
Many doctors dream of opening their own clinic. We will give you lots of business and marketing advice on the course so that you can turn the dream into a reality. Our Team of Doctors have years of experience running their own Harley Street clinics and can offer you invaluable advice in getting started.
