Dr Wyman Chan Appearing On Fake Britain

Teeth whitening in London dentist, Dr Wyman Chan is to appear on BBC’s flagship consumer rights programme, Fake Britain. Dominic Littlewood hosts this primetime show, which investigates counterfeit goods and services in the UK. This summer, Fake Britain is highlighting the dangers of having your teeth whitened by a non-dental professional.  Our principle dentist will be advising consumers on how to safely and effectively whiten their teeth.

The show is based upon the Barrington-Armstrong Thorpe case. A cowboy trader, Barrington-Armstrong Thorpe sold teeth whitening in London products with peroxide levels up to 100 times the legal limit and was jailed last November for 18 months. He was prosecuted by Essex Trading Standards for misleading consumers and for a string of breaches of the Cosmetic Product Regulations 2008 Act. Armstrong-Thorpe had denied the offences but was found guilty by a jury.

The trader sold tooth whitening in London products from 2005 through a company called Smile Brighter Marketing Limited and later via a number of websites. By law the maximum amount of hydrogen peroxide allowed is 0.1%, unless a dental professional is supplying it. But products sold online by Armstrong-Thorpe were found to contain 103 times the limit. In 2007, he was warned by Bath Trading Standards the teeth whitener he was selling was illegal. But he continued to trade and in 2009 was contacted by Essex Trading Standards. An investigation into the business began and he continued to trade despite accepting a caution from Essex Trading Standards.
