Botox, chemical peels, facials and facial hair removal typically aren’t on the list of services you expect from a cosmetic dentist. Jacksonville’s Burgess Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, however, is a local leader in the growing nationwide trend of dentists offering aesthetic procedures for the face.
According to a recent survey, 16 percent of U.S. dentists already offer Botox to their patients and 37 percent said they would consider it. A subsequent survey by TheWealthyDentist.com revealed that while 43 percent of respondents feel dentists should stick to healthy teeth and gums, a full 57 percent argue that dentists are licensed medical professionals fully capable of safely offering services like dermal fillers, skin peels, microdermabrasion and facial hair removal.
Jacksonville cosmetic dentist Dr. Eric Burgess, founder of the Burgess Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, believes that dentists, and particularly cosmetic dental surgeons, are uniquely qualified to perform facial aesthetic procedures.
“As dentists, we are much more knowledgeable and skilled about facial anatomy and features than many of the skincare boutique practitioners out there,” he says. “Dentists are very adept at giving facial injections, so with the extra training in skincare and dermal fillers, including the techniques, indications and contraindications, it is fully within our realm of professional skills.”
The Burgess Center for Cosmetic Dentistry offers Jacksonville-area patients a full battery of general and cosmetic dentistry services, as well as facial aesthetic services including Botox and other dermal fillers, facial hair removal, skin revitalizing facials, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
