Botox: Q&AAsk a Question
Why Should Dental Hygienists Not Be Allowed to Perform Therapeutic Botox?
I am a registered dental hygienist in CA. Hygienists are trained and fully licensed in local anesthesia in the mouth, have extensive knowledge and training in head and neck anatomy and have taken the exact same science pre-requisites as RN's.
We already have the skill of giving injections regularly and performing many non surgical treatments such as soft tissue laser etc.With proper training and supervision by a licensed dentist why should hygienists be restricted? What exactly do the laws say?
