Training in Botox and other aesthetic treatments allows you to either supplement your income from nursing, if you want to stay in the profession, or to pursue a much more lucrative aesthetic career.
> 2. Work-life balance
Working as a nurse in the NHS is extremely demanding and often very stressful. The rigours of the job mean that invariably, it’s sometimes hard to leave work at work. Many nurses find it very difficult to switch off and enjoy their free time as much as they could, which can take a huge toll and often lead to feelings of ‘burn out’.
Aesthetics, while no less hands-on, is far less demanding emotionally. You perform a treatment, your patient goes away happy – but even if they aren’t 100% happy, any problems can usually be rectified. This difference makes it far easier to enjoy your down time and maintain a healthy work-life balance, without dwelling on the stresses of the day.
> 3. Greater security and flexibility
Becoming a qualified Botox practitioner gives you the opportunity to piece together the career you want, as well as making you less vulnerable to the vicissitudes of a fickle economy – and assaults on your NHS pension pot.
Taking one of our Botox courses for nurses will give you options. You might want to split your time between nursing and aesthetics to give yourself more variety. You might just want a break from nursing for a while. Or it could be that you’re ready for a complete career change.
Training in Botox and other aesthetic treatments will give you lots more strings to your bow. You can set up your own business and be your own boss, work for a clinic at weekends alongside your nursing work, or look for employment as a full-time aesthetician.
Whatever happens in the economy, you’ll be far better equipped to adapt to changing circumstances and weather the storm.

Meet Dr Agata Smolen
If you come along on the Saturday, we’ll be joined by Dr Agata Smolen (pictured above). If anyone is qualified to talk about how our Botox course for dentists could change your career, it’s Agata.
A qualified dentist who trained in her native Poland, Agata moved to the UK in 2013. She first became interested in the idea of aesthetic medicine while practising cosmetic dentistry.
After researching training providers, she took the plunge and trained in Botox and Fillers with Cosmetic Courses. She now splits her time between dentistry and aesthetics, and has never looked back.
You can read all about Agata’s background and career here.
Agata is a fantastic person to chat to about the challenges and rewards of moving into aesthetics as a dentist. She’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you have, so feel free to come over and have a chat with her on Saturday.
See you there!
Tickets for the Dentistry Show are completely free, and there is still time to register. If you would like to come, click here. You can find out more about the show, including the exhibitor list and how to get there, on the Dentistry Show website.
Here she talks about her career, her training and her new life in aesthetics.
I’m a medically qualified doctor with a background in anaesthetics in the NHS. When I first thought about aesthetics training, I spoke to a friend who was already qualified, and he recommended Cosmetic Courses.
Why Cosmetic Courses?
It’s the only course run by a Plastic Surgeon, and has a brilliant reputation. In an industry where training is notoriously variable, that assured me I’d be in the best place.
Which courses did you take?
I started off with Foundation Botox and Fillers, and walked away feeling confident about Botox, but wanting to learn a little more about fillers. I booked some more one-to-one training to learn more advanced procedures – lip fillers, cheek fillers, and advanced Botox.
I then trained up in microsclerotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, Dermaroller, and microdermabrasion and peels as well.
I think I’ve probably done just about every course they offer!
What did you think of your training?
I’ve trained with most members of the team and found everyone so friendly, helpful and supportive. The quality of the training was second to none. The personalised advice I got and also bits and bobs about business advice were really helpful.
Would you recommend Cosmetic Courses to others?
I’ve already done so to several colleagues and friends. I wouldn’t send them anywhere else. The quality of training I’ve received I don’t think is matched elsewhere in the industry.
What advice would you give to others thinking about aesthetics training?
When it comes to choosing your provider, look at who has designed the training programme. How well established are they? Who are their trainers, and what’s their reputation?
What are the main benefits you’ve found from moving into aesthetics?
For me, the benefits have been enormous. My work-life balance is much healthier. I work the hours I choose to work, I have time for family and friends, and if I have to make an appointment to see my GP, I don’t struggle to do that any more. I’m a much happier person as a result.
The earning potential within aesthetics is massive – much better than within the NHS for me. Although I’m still in the early stages of my business development, that is really, really exciting.
I love my job – I don’t dread Monday mornings any more, and that’s an amazing feeling!
Cosmetic Courses offers a wide range of courses for medical professionals looking to enter the aesthetic industry. For information on any of our aesthetics training courses, please don’t hesitate to contact the team on 01844 318317 or email email@example.com.
Most delegates who choose bespoke training opt to learn one-on-one, as it allows for much more interaction with your trainer. However, you can learn in a small group if you prefer.
The session lasts for 4 hours, either morning (9am-1pm) or afternoon (1.30-5.30pm), and you can book for any day of the week that’s convenient for you.
A bespoke course allows you to drill down and learn more, and practise more, of the exact techniques you’re interested in.
Perhaps you’d like to build your confidence and hone your skills in the most popular techniques – upper face Botox and dermal fillers around the mouth?
Or maybe you’d like to develop more specialist skills with advanced injecting techniques like cheek augmentation and lower face Botox?
The choice is yours. Whatever you’d like to focus on, a bespoke course offers intensive targeted practice so you can develop full confidence in your skills.
To give you an idea of our bespoke training from someone who’s been there, one of our trainers, qualified dentist Dr Olha Vorudukhina, originally came to us for bespoke training. You can read all about her here.
Please note, because of the intensive nature of bespoke training, we’ll usually require you to have completed Foundation level training. Contact us and we’ll be happy to advise.
For more information about our Botox training courses, or any of our programme of aesthetic training, please contact the team on 01844 318317 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joining us on Saturday will be Dr Agata Smolen (pictured). Agata is a qualified dentist who trained in Botox and Fillers with us, and now offers treatments at our sister aesthetic clinic in Northampton.
Agata is a great person to talk to about the transition from dentistry to aesthetics, as she’s been there herself. She’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you have, so feel free to come over and have a chat with her on Saturday.
Everyone who books a course with us over the 2 days will receive 10% discount off the booked course. But you might not need it – we’re also offering a free prize draw with a top prize of £250 off any course. What better way to kick-start your aesthetics career!
About the Dentistry Show
The Dentistry Show is a free-to-attend, action-packed event offering a wide range of products and services for dentists, including verifiable CPD lectures and lots of opportunities for networking.
Here’s some of what you can expect:
Two day CORE CPD Programme
Short-term Ortho Lounge
Co-located with DTS
Business Skills Workshops
It’s the biggest show of its kind in the dentistry industry, and from previous visits we can say it’s well worth coming along. Though it’s free to attend, you will need to register. You can find out more about the show, and register to attend, on the Dentistry Show’s website.
See you in Birmingham!
Cosmetic Courses offer Botox certification for dentists as part of a varied programme of aesthetic training courses. If you can’t make the Dentistry Show but would like information on any of our courses, please feel free to contact the team on 01844 318317 or email email@example.com.
And unlike most medical professionals, the face is where you spend your whole working day.
With an expert understanding of facial anatomy, you arguably have a head start over many other medical professionals when it comes to administering facial treatments. And the chances are you’ll be better equipped to deal with any complications that arise too.
2. You’ll increase your income
Attending one of our Botox and filler courses for dentists will offer a real shot in the arm for your career. Firstly because you’ll be able to offer Botox and filler treatments to enhance your service to your dental patients.
If they’re generally unhappy with their mouth area, you can offer extra treatments to help – for example, adding volume to lips, improving nose-mouth grooves or reducing marionette lines – alongside the dental work they need.
This is probably the easiest win, as it creates a new income stream from your existing patients. But you’ll also attract new aesthetic patients who may not have come to you for dental treatment alone.
Once you’ve won their trust with great treatments, they may choose you for their dental work too.
3. Your days will be more varied
Though you may love your dentistry work, and enjoy patient contact, sometimes you’d like to have a break from fillings!
Training in Botox and fillers will give you the flexibility of a ‘portfolio’ career. You can split your working week in a way that suits you. You might want to dedicate certain days to aesthetic treatments, or break up your days by allocating some appointments to aesthetics and some to dentistry. Either way, you’ll never be bored!
4. Your friends and family will love you!
Ask anybody who knows you, and they’ll tell you how great it is to be acquainted with a dentist. When it comes to our health and our bodies, it’s incredibly handy to have an expert we know and trust who we can ask for advice – or better still, go to for our treatment.
And if that dentist is also able to offer safe, effective anti-ageing treatments, even better!

Subject to approval by councillors, the surgery will be open from Monday to Saturday, with an emergency clinic on Sundays. It will be in a prime position right at the front of the store.
The firm bills itself as “a new and very different kind of dental practice offering general, cosmetic and specialist dentistry to all”. And with innovative plans like these it’s hard to disagree.
Any Botox for you today Madam?
Offering Botox and other non-surgical treatments in the reassuringly familiar surroundings of the supermarket will no doubt help to demystify the treatments.
What once required a daunting trip to a specialist skin clinic will become as routine as picking up something for dinner.
Add in the sheer convenience of being situated somewhere people return time and time again and it seems likely shoppers will be tempted to give treatment a try.
A spokesman for the company said: “Our practices are situated conveniently in selected Sainsbury’s supermarkets throughout the UK. By working in a close partnership with Sainsbury’s, we can provide highly convenient, friendly and complete dental services.
“This is a good alternative to expensive, privately run high street dentists or busy NHS dentists with long waiting lists.”
A Sainsbury’s spokesman said: “The Centre for Dentistry are progressing plans for a new site and we look forward to planning decision in the near future.”
Will I receive any support after completing my Botox and fillers course?
We pride ourselves on our comprehensive ongoing support. If you have any questions at all after completing your training, whether clinical or business related, you are always welcome to contact us for guidance.
With our delegates’ permission, we often answer some of the questions we receive in videos or other training materials so other people can benefit from the advice.
