Dental hygienists and paramedics accepted on Level 7 injectable course

Industry Qualifications (IQ) has updated the entry criteria for its Level 7 Certificate in Injectables in Aesthetic Medicine to recognise dental hygienists, dental therapists and paramedics. The decision is said to come after extensive consultation within the aesthetics sector. IQ provides qualifications that are approved by UK regulators, including Ofqual and Qualification Wales. It is not, however, the only awarding body to provide a Level 7 certificate in injectables. Chief executive of IQ, Raymond Clarke, said, “We are thrilled to have been part of making such an important change to the aesthetic qualification landscape within the UK. A standard approach to upskilling the competence of aesthetic practitioners from a range of backgrounds can only lead to improvements to patient safety.” The president of the British Association of Cosmetic Dental Professionals (BACDP), Jane Reynolds, said, “The BACDP is very pleased to be accepted by IQ and to be part of standardising training across aesthetic medicine.” She added, “This has been a long time coming. Dental hygienists and therapists have been carrying out injectables in aesthetic medicine since 2009 under the guidance of the General Dental Council.”
