The original Botox & Dermal Fillers educational standard, Dentox has been the industry leader in Certification for medical professionals for over 35 years. In fact, the leading source of referrals for Dentox certification programs is actually medical liability insurance companies.
Certification is only as good as the professor and institution who issues it. Every course is personally overseen by Dr Howard Katz, whose laurels also include the creation of the IADE, collaboration with the top Pharmaceutical companies in the aesthetics field (including Allergan, Prollenium, Medicis), and the development of sugar alcohols (primarily known today as xylitol and sorbitol) for patient consumption. That research is almost 40 years old, but it gave Dr Howard Katz a taste for improving the lives of not only his patients, but patients in medical offices up and down the country.
Without doubt his largest research achievements lie in the field of Botulinum Toxins. From being part of the patent application for Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox for facial aesthetics, to helping create dermal fillers and Oraverse anesthetics, there are few patents in this field that he has not influenced. He in fact co-created the only FDA approved human injectable in 2008-2009.
As the creator of the first educational courses teaching the use of Botulinum Toxins for facial aesthietics (all other programs have been derived from his), Dr. Katz has spent over 30 years teaching the discipline to educational and medical institutions around the world (including NSU, NYU, and The AGD). By including his experience as an injector (amongst other benefits, his private practice and research lends itself to a unique knowledge of how to avoid and correct side effects) along with the latest research into his teaching, his students can always be guaranteed to have the most innovative ideas and techniques at their fingertips.
Medical professionals trained by Dr. Katz in Botox and Dermal Fillers applications have learned from the absolute authority in the field, and are uniquely qualified to provide a level of expert treatment to their patients.
