The person I’ve booked with turns out to be a dentist rather than a doctor, should dentists be doing these tweakments?

Yes – dentists make great aesthetic practitioners, as do nurses and surgeons. I don’t mind who does is doing the treatment as long as they are:

  1. medically trained
  2. have a lot of specialist training in aesthetic procedures
  3. have had a lot of experience putting that specialised training into practice
  4. they can recognise complications, and handle them if they arise and
  5. have an artistic eye, so you end up with results that are not just technically correct, but lovely to look at!
