Botox at the dentist anyone?

The other day I cracked my tooth in half and had to make an urgent appointment with my dentist. Unfortunately, I couldn't get an appointment right away because my dentist was in 'Botox Clinic' that afternoon. 

I'm sorry what? 

Apparently, this isn't unusual these days. Most dental surgeries offer non-essential cosmetic botox as a lucrative sideline. Three other surgeries in my local area also provide facial peels and collagen implants. Dentists argue that there couldn't be anyone more suited to administering injections since they are already 'experts' in the head and neck.

Dentists may or may not be good at delivering this service. That is not really what gets to me. It's more the fact that there is an increasingly blase attitude to injecting stuff into faces, and everywhere you turn there seems to be a place to get your image surgically altered. What's wrong with what we've got?

What's your opinion on this? I'd love to hear it. 

Ciao for now x

  1. Not yet, but in a short period people will go for it. that's what happened with Botox Cosmetic at first...people didn't trust it, but after a while when they saw the results people started to use botox to treat wrinkles.
