Are you considering pursuing a career in cosmetic dermatology after completing your Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS)? The answer is yes! There are a variety of short-term courses available to those who have completed their BDS, including a three-month comprehensive course in Endodontics, Prosthodontics, and Certificate courses in Cosmetic Dermatology and Cosmetology. Additionally, you can pursue a Diploma in Dental Care. If you are looking to specialize further, you can obtain a postgraduate degree in Oral Surgery and then super specialize in Cosmetic Surgery. It is becoming increasingly common for family doctors, gynecologists, and even dentists to offer cosmetic procedures.
However, dermatologists are seeing the side effects of these treatments and caution that it is important to be properly trained before performing any type of cosmetic procedure.
