Jocelyn has been involved with both dentally related therapeutic and cosmetic uses of botulinum toxin A since 2006. In New Zealand she has been a trainer for New Zealand Medical and Scientific BoNT-A courses and also provided one-to-one training for individual practitioners in their practice. Dr Prue Baxter BSc Otago, BDS Otago, FDSRCS Edinburgh, MB ChB Glasgow, FRCS (Gen) FRCS (OMFS) Prue is a specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon in both the UK and NZ. New Zealand born and bred, she left for her OE straight after graduating BDS. Whilst in the UK she gained her postgraduate dental qualifications, a medical degree, a general surgery fellowship, a fellowship in oral and maxillofacial surgery, and completed her specialist training to become a consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon. She then mentored and trained numerous registrars. More recently she was an examiner for the UK final exit examinations in oral and maxillofacial surgery. She was an external examiner for graduate entry dentistry and is still an internal examiner for graduate entry medicine. She has given multiple guest lectures on different continents, including a 2009 NZDA annual conference workshop on botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT-A) in Wellington. She is looking forward to again facilitating the safe use of BoNT-A by dentists in New Zealand.
