Known for his dedication for pushing for excellence and being on the leading edge of this field, Dr. Roberts is continually exploring how the properties of these treatments can help improve patient care in the therapeutic use of botulinum toxin in medicine and dentistry. His most recent lectures and teaching have covered TMD, parafunctional habits, periodontic, endodontic, surgical, implant, orthodontic, sleep apnea and the use of botulinum toxin in the treatment of headaches and migraines.

This pioneering spirit has also led to the creation of several firsts in the industry. Dr. Roberts, through PTIFAT has developed proven protocols, templates and tools to help elevate the level of teaching and achieve predictable results for patients. These tools have been adopted by many within the industry and include, but are not limited to the following:

  • the PTIFA Anatomic Landmark Template for Cosmetic Botulinum Toxin placement

The quality of the program Dr. Roberts developed at PTIFAT is such that in 2014 a Canadian regulatory college hired PTIFAT to assist with the creation of a Standard of Practice for facial injectables and aesthetics. This Standard is now being used across many regulatory boards in Canada.
