The Provincial Dental Board of Nova Scotia (PDBNS) has approved the use of botulinum toxin A and dermal fillers for dentists – announced back in November of 2019. The PDBNS has incorporated a “Standard of Practice for the Use of Botulinum Toxin (Type A) and Esthetic Therapies” which was modified from the Alberta Dental Association and College Standard of Practice introduced back in 2016. The college in Nova Scotia is now the second province within Canada to formally recognize and introduce this national standard of patient care.

After completing proper training, Nova Scotia dentists can now offer botulinum toxin treatments (ie: Botox/Dysport) for aesthetics (fine lines and wrinkles) and facial pain/therapeutics (migraines/headaches/TMD), as well as dermal fillers (facial volume). To begin offering services in their practice, dentists must complete a minimum of the online Level 1 course, as well as the Level 2 clinical hands-on.
