This workshop was absolutely amazing. I have had the chance to do several BOTOX® training courses and this was, by far, the most comprehensive. The didactic material was easy to follow and very informative, while the hands-on component gave me the confidence to integrate BOTOX® therapy into my dental practice almost immediately. The course is well organized and Dr. Braun’s entire team is always ready to help. I had several questions come up even after the course was completed and they have continued to support me through emails and phone calls. I would recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about adding BOTOX® to their practice! Thank you all! — Tarn Dhillon, DMD

I had the pleasure of attending Dr. Martin Braun’s BOTOX® training workshop recently. The entire day, which was a long one, was well-organized and incredibly informative. As a dentist with no prior knowledge of how to administer BOTOX® treatment, I left the course feeling very confident in my ability to perform this treatment on my patients. Dr. Braun is wildly enthusiastic about the treatment he performs and teaches. He and his staff are some of the most fun and energetic individuals I’ve seen work together. We spent the morning in a didactic session session followed by an afternoon of hands-on training where we treated Dr. Braun’s regular patients. Dr. Braun welcomes the participates of the workshop to administer as much treatment as possible in the 5 hour hands-on portion of the day. Having done repetitive injections multiple times left me feeling very able and confident. I will definitely attend future workshops held by Dr. Braun. — Dr. Sharan Atwal, DMD

I recently took the September 2016 BOTOX® course taught by Dr Braun. I appreciated the pre-course handouts as well as the short video. There were 7 of us – 3 dentists, 3 GP’s, and myself, an OB/Gyn. We were warmly welcomed by Dr Braun’s staff. We were provided with an in depth course with an accompanying book with comprehensive anatomy, instructions and pearls. Dr Braun is dynamic, irreverant, knowledgeable and down to earth. He is very entertaining and non threatening. It is obvious he has been providing this service for a very long time which was reassuring as a learner. He was easy to follow and answered all questions. After a truly delicious lunch, we were taken from room to room and were all given hands-on experience in injecting BOTOX® with live patients for several hours. The patients were very accepting of our presence and tolerant of our inexperience. Dr Braun also demonstrated skills in establishing rapport and recall with these patients. I felt confident after leaving the course that I now have a suitable set of skills to give BOTOX® injections in a responsible and safe way. Thank you. — Ruth Abrahams, MD FRCSC | Langley, BC

I have been in practice for over 40 years and have literally taken hundreds and hundreds of hours of continuing education, not only locally, but nationally and internationally. Without a doubt the BOTOX® course I took from Vancouver Laser was one of the best I have ever taken. Well organized, professional, meaningful didactic and practical applications. The pre reading prepared us for the weekend, with follow up documentation, live demonstrations and hands on practice. I felt very confident leaving the course and incorporating BOTOX® into my practice. The ongoing support as needed is a great service to the participants. — Dr. Garry Lunn
