Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey – September 6, 2011) The American Academy of Facial Cosmetics (A.A.F.C.) directed by Drs. Bruce Freund, Zev Schulhof and Jerald Friedman, is very excited to announce that their facial injectable course is one of the first courses in the state of New Jersey to be given accreditation by the N.J. State Board of Dentistry. The A.A.F.C. course will satisfy all the requirements of the State Board toward the certification in injectable pharmacologics, a requirement needed to perform these procedures in the state of New Jersey. For more information log on to www.aafcinjectables.org
This certification course will be given at the Meadowlands Hospital in Secaucus, N.J. on September 15 & 16, 2011. Upon completion, doctors will be certified in injectable pharmacologics and will receive 21 continuing education credits, approved by New Jersey State Board of Dentistry.
Take the course from the originators not the duplicators - facial injectable courses may look the same but they're NOT. Our course includes products needed for the hands-on portion as well as a live model demonstration, not just mentored supervision. We offer continued support which many courses are unable to provide. We don't just lecture about facial injectables, we teach what we do and we do what we teach. We have integrated these procedures into our dental practices to make facial cosmetics an important source of income and we will share this expertise with you.
