Why is it Illegal for beauticians to perform tooth whitening?

Did you know only registered dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists and clinical dental technicians, working to the prescription of a dentist, can perform tooth whitening? You can check to see whether someone is registered by visiting this website https://www.gdc-uk.org/ . If the person performing the tooth whitening cannot be found on one of the GDC registers then they are not legally allowed to practice tooth whitening and it would be unlawful for them to whiten your teeth.

Have you been enticed by someone who is providing tooth whitening at an extremely low cost and claims they have insurance? “The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTC) state that they will not insure individuals to carry out tooth whitening as there is no government recognised qualification for this treatment.” Should you wish to know more about tooth whitening please visit the website below for more information on the legal procedures.
