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

Susan is an exceptional teacher and injector. Learning from such an experienced colleague was absolutely invaluable! — C. Choi, DMD

I thoroughly enjoyed the BOTOX® workshop put on by Dr. Braun and his staff. Dr. Braun is extremely experienced and competent, and he’s a wildly entertaining and effective instructor. The staff were all very pleasant and made me feel at home. The day was well organized and I had plenty of opportunity to ask questions during the informative didactic and substantial practical sessions. I unreservedly recommend this course to any professional wanting to learn about BOTOX® use in practice. — Dr. Chris Tetley, MD

The BOTOX® education and hands on training has given me the confidence to deliver a predictable result to my patients. Giving my patients renewed self confidence.

Dr Braun provides excellent continued support resulting in continued learning and growth. This training is a must for anyone considering incorporating BOTOX® in their practice. — Dr Raj Dhiman

I took both the filler and BOTOX® courses from the Brauns and it was the best decision I could have made. Both courses contain the most up to date information available on injectables today. Susan and Martin Braun speak from vast experiences sharing the do’s and don’ts of injectables. They will only tell you exactly what you need to know and the hands on training you will receive is bar none. The courses are highly entertaining as well and your day will go by fast. I left both times with great confidence in my ability to inject in a safe manner. If you are still thinking about taking the courses then don’t, just do it and you won’t regret it. — Andras Iso, MD

Dr. Martin Braun’s BOTOX® course has proven to be a great asset to our dental office. His down to earth approach was very entertaining and informative, utilizing both a review of the literature as well as his significant experience to provide us with a solid foundation. The staff at the Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre were incredibly helpful, equipping us with the perfect start-up kit for a successful launch of BOTOX® treatment at our office. I would recommend Dr. Braun’s course for anyone interested in providing this desirable service. — Tom Karkanis, BSc, PhD, DDS

Dr. Braun’s workshop is one of the best continuing education experiences I have had. The information was well presented in a very engaging format and prepared us well for the practical session. I truly valued having so much hands-on experience with such great patients in such a supportive atmosphere. A special thanks to Dr. Braun and his very helpful staff for being such an amazing team. They really know how to put on a great workshop. Highly recommended! — Suzy Hupfau, DMD

I recently had the pleasure of attending The Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre Workshop taught by Dr Martin Braun. It was one of the best courses I have attended in a long time. It was well organized, interesting, and the day long course seemed to end too quickly.

Dr Braun was a great speaker that kept your attention with numerous anecdotes, but kept on topic to impart a great deal of information in a short period of time. With both didactic and clinical components to the workshop you left understanding the course material and the confidence to put it into your practice. — D. Burdett, DMD

My colleagues and I were looking for the most experienced and professional clinic for our training. We had researched extensively and found that the VLSC to be the most reputable. They did not disappoint. Drs Braun were highly experienced, informative, and entertaining. Their staff set the standard for professionalism that I hope to emulate at my clinic. Overall, I would recommend their training to anyone looking for the best. I have returned for the Filler course and plan to follow up for the advanced session in the future. — Adam J Hrdlicka, BSc, MD, CCFP

Thank you Dr. Braun for a fantastic, dynamic hands-on learning experience! You have given me the confidence and enthusiasm to use BOTOX® in my practice. I was impressed with your wonderful staff, Janette and Rhonda, who were so organized and professional. They really helped the day run smoothly to maximize our injection experience! — Dr. Angela Nguan

I would highly recommend Dr. Braun’s BOTOX® course. We were provided with the information needed to tailor treatment based on individual patient needs and anatomy. The small number of course participants allowed for lots of hands-on time with patients, and I left the course feeling confident. — Meredith Standridge, DMD

I just wanted to express my sincerest Thanks and Gratitude for a truly wonderful learning opportunity!

I really appreciate being welcomed into your office – You have a Superb Team! The course was amazing and Susan, you have a Great Knack for sharing your knowledge and expertise and with such kindness. — Kevin Bougher, DDS

This workshop could not have been better: highly applicable information presented with humour in an intimate environment, practical and thorough hands-on training, and approachable helpful support. This one day has provided me with the ability, products, and information to immediately integrate BOTOX® therapy into my dental practice. — Ryan Gauf, DDS

It was honestly one of the most useful courses I’ve ever taken in content and hands-on exposure. — Alex Hird, DDS

Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Center’s one-day BOTOX® workshop for dentists/doctors was informative and entertaining. In particular, the ample opportunity for hands-on treatment, with diverse cases from which to learn from, enabled me to begin incorporating it into my practice immediately. Above all, I would have to compliment the competent and courteous staff, for making it a smooth and ‘wrinkle-free’ experience! — David Khang, DDS

I have attended both courses now. The experience was beyond any expectations. I could not say which one I find more interesting: BOTOX® or Filler. The two procedures complement each other and can make a remarkable difference for the patients. Both Dr. Susan and Martin Braun presented the material in a fun and enthusiastic manner. There is a good balance between the theoretical and practical part. At the end of the day I left with a lot of new information and confidence in the injection techniques. Janette, Rhonda and Chanel were extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you all! — Dana Vinti, DMD

I attended both the BOTOX® and Filler course taught by Dr. Martin and Susan Braun and found the courses to be very informative and useful.

Wonderful course with Dr. Braun. Lots of practice and very useful information. Thank you Janette and Dr. Braun. — Arash Soufi, DMD

Thank you so much for the extra care you and Rhonda put forth for the course Friday – it was a long one!! I was especially surprised at how much injecting we did get to do on patients, which was fantastic. I think Dr. Braun is lucky to have such wonderful ladies choreographing his days – you make it work very well. Again please give my thanks to Dr. Braun and you and the rest of the staff did make the day a pleasure – I will recommend the course to my colleagues!! — Dawn Webster, DDS

I just wanted to thank you, Rhonda and Dr. Braun for having such a wonderful workshop…you guys are such a great team! After leaving the clinic, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the information and the injections we did and how I would incorporate it all in my own practice. The bonus on top of the workshop was getting the BOTOX® done on myself and experiencing it first hand. The BOTOX® has kicked in and the muscle aches in my temporalis and corrugator supercilii are reduced almost completely. Not only do I feel so much better but no more furrow lines too! Yay! I couldn’t believe how well it worked. Thanks again! I can’t believe I waited this long to take this workshop since seeing your office at the PDC too! — Evelyn Sue, DMD
