About

The International Association of Dentofacial Esthetics

 The IADE recognizes the cross-over of many medical and dental conditions and procedures, and therefore offers dental and medical professionals the opportunity to obtain certification in a series of dentofacial and medical esthetic techniques through intensive  hands-on workshops.

The IADE is one of the largest and most recognized organizations of its kind with chapters around the world. The IADE faculty and alumni are leaders in their fields and have decades of clinical and educational training history , much of which created by our instructors. We are nationally and internationally recognized as the #1 choice in dental and medical esthetic training and certification for Dentists as well as Physician’s (MD and DO), RN’s, NP’s, PA’s and LVN’s.

We  provide education on the beneficial esthetic effects of having an ideal dental frame ( a full aligned dentition) to support the muscles and skin of the face. Our students also become proficient in facial and smile esthetic procedures such as Botulinum Toxin A (Botox®, Dysport, Xeomin), Peri-oral soft tissue (Dermal) Fillers (including Restylane, Juvederm ), Lecithin buccal fat reduction and energy based equipment.

The IADE teaches only safe and minimally invasive treatments to professionals who are best qualified to provide these treatments. Our care and quality prepares students to safely implement these treatments immediately into their practices. We do not teach procedures that are not clinically proven nor do we endorse products that we do not believe in. We provide recognized continued education in most parts of the world. Most of our courses are CME Category I and CE certified.

Selecting an excellent dentofacial esthetics hands-on program should not be a challenge. Any IADE program should give you the peace of mind knowing that you are training with pre-verified, reputable educational organizations.

  • Our selected educational organizations and instructors that we work with are the leaders in their fields and may have invented the treatments and the agents you are learning about
  • We recommend courses given by true experts in this field, some with more than a decade of experience with these materials. Our instructors have more real experience than most others in the world.
  • We have arranged and provided more hands-on training in dentofacial injectibles than any other Botox® (botulinum toxin) and  soft tissue (lecithin, injectable (dermal) filler, skin tighteners) esthetics courses available for dentists and other health care professionals.
  • We use only the most reputable medical and dental educational companies
  • We teach about most of the available products and recommend which products are best and which should be avoided. All participants are encouraged to use a few different products in the hands-on section of the course, depending on which part of the face is being injected.
  • Our training courses cover a large variety of effective minimally invasive treatments including facial and dental injectible products.
  • Sufficient time and quantity of material are always available at any IADE approved program for you to treat as many patients and areas that you may choose
  • The IADE will negotiate on your behalf to ensure you pay the lowest prices for the best materials
  • We offer both mannequin, typodont and live patient training so you learn to perform every procedure competantly.
  • At most other programs you will only treat an area requested by your patient. This limits your experience because it may exclude most other treatments.
  • Our injectable courses are recognized by Allergan, Inc. (the makers of Botox and Juvederm) and Medicis Corporation (the makers of Dysport and Restylane) ® , Merz (the manufacturer of Xeomin) and Prollenium (the makers of Revenesse ).
  • We have consulted and created protocols for malpractice liability insurance carriers. Our courses meet the requirements of malpractice insurance carriers for them to provide coverage.
