Dr. Warren Roberts
Co-founder & Clinical Director
Dr. Warren Roberts is a general dentist who has been in practice in Vancouver, BC for 40+ years. After attending several botulinum toxin and facial rejuvenation training programs earlier in his career, Dr. Roberts was concerned with the level of training that was being provided in this field. To be an exceptional practitioner with no negative side effects, Dr. Roberts believes you need not only a deep level of understanding of head and neck anatomy, but also a deep understanding of specific practices and injection techniques that make the patient experience remarkable. The result was the development of PTIFA – a training institute that provides an unprecedented depth of clinical theory, hands-on teaching and practice integration (including team training modules) in the field of facial rejuvenation (botulinum toxin, fillers, lasers, and more).
Dr. Roberts is recognized by Dentistry Today as one of the top 100 CE speakers. Dr. Roberts is also a leading botulinum toxin educator in North America, who teaches physicians, dentists, nurses and who’s practice has been stated as the number one dental provider of botulinum toxin, in North America. Since 2008, he has trained over 8,000 doctors nationally and internationally, and has treated hundreds of botulinum toxin, patients. Through his commitment to delivering excellence in this field, his program content and educational model is now being adopted by various regulatory boards across Canada. Dr. Roberts also acts as the leading advisor to FACETEC – a photography and records software used for analysis and diagnosis comparison.
In addition, the Dr. Roberts has developed the following templates and procedures which are setting the standard for treatment in facial rejuvenation:

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. This has led him to explore in greater depth 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. Dr. Roberts is an in demand speaker and published author and co-author of numerous articles on botulinum toxin in dentistry for publications such as Dentistry Today, Teamwork, Oral Health and Inside Dentistry.
Through PTIFA, Dr. Roberts developed tiered and gated education material for physicians, dentists and nurses. PTIFA has the world’s largest database of facial rejuvenation procedures of botulinum toxin, dermal fillers and other adjunctive treatments. The development of FACETEC photography and records software for facial rejuvenation and therapeutic treatments has demonstrated the benefits of comparison of before and after records to increase patient care. Dr. Roberts pioneered mid-face injection techniques which shocked the injector world, enabling less filler requirements in facial rejuvenation.
The inclusion of radio frequency and microneedling to his treatment armamentarium stimulates the collagen induction therapy and has the patients own immune system and natural healing process provide more volume. Also resulting in less dermal filler requirements.vThrough the RFRP series, Drs. Roberts have found when used in sequence there is more complete enhancement and longevity of filler products.
