Highlights from the recent Botox and Dermal Filler Course



“In my 43 year involvement in organized dentistry, the presenting of a myriad and multitude of Continuing Education programs has been a primary function. FACES programs on Botox and Dermal Filler have far exceeded my greatest expectations. Dr. Meinecke’s presentation exhibited not only her knowledge and background in this area but her attention to detail and hands on one-on-one instruction for each injector and patient was above and beyond the norm.”
– Charles H. Perle, DMD, FAGD; Executive Director, New Jersey ​Academy of General Dentistry

“The botox and dermal filler course was informative. Dr. Meinecke was knowledgeable and helpful. The atmosphere was friendly and conducive to learning. Very well organized and interesting. Can’t wait to use it in the office! Also, I am looking forward to the next course by Dr. Meinecke and NJAGD.”
– Sanjeev Satwah, DMD, FAGD
