If you’re looking for a great return on your continuing education investment, look no further than a Botox course from Dentox. When you offer Botox and injectable dermal fillers, you carry absolutely no liability and even if you only perform the procedure three times a year, you realize a profit.
Let’s break it down. The cost of a 100 unit vial costs you less than $600. Your profit on that 100 unit vial is easily $1,000. It takes about 5 minutes or less to inject all of that into different sites. Even if you only do this once a month, all told you spend about an hour a year to make $12,000. Multiply that by 20 years, and you make $240,000 in 20 hours worth of work, from a $1,500 investment in your practice and yourself. If you can find a greater return on anything, I want to know about it.
Figure in the fact that Botox has very few side effects, the associated risks are minimal in most people, and the results are temporary. The temporary nature of Botox means that, even if you do make a mistake, the effects will wear off shortly. It also means that many of your Botox patients will come back multiple times a year.
There is a certain amount of time spent on each patient on simple administrative functions. Because Botox only takes a few minutes, these activities take about as long as the actual procedure. As a dentist, when you offer Botox to patients who are already in the office for their regular check ups, many of these things are already being done anyway. Your patients will love the convenience of not having to make (and take time off for, and travel to) a separate appointment.
Let’s compare this to some other courses you might choose. If you take a good course on placing implants, the course and the equipment is going to run you somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000. This is just the course and the equipment. Then you add in lab fees and implant materials. What are the ramifications, for you and your patient, of badly placed implants, or those that don’t take properly? How often does this happen?
Consider a CT scanner. How many patients do you have to scan before your start to make a profit? What are the ramifications of missed pathology? What about the potential for risks of excessive radiation?
As you can see, there are a lot of things you can offer your patients, but nothing is more profitable or as low-risk as Botox training.
