Keep it Legal

So you’ve made the decision to have tooth whitening in London but where do you go? There’s lots of tempting deals out there and many of them seem too good to be true. Well, sorry to break it to you, but they are.

If your local beautician is offering the service, steer clear. Only dentists, dental hygienists and dental therapists (working to the prescription of a dentist) who are registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) can carry out tooth whitening.The recent case of Lorna Jamous highlights the point.

On 10 May 2013, the High Court in London overturned an acquittal by Westminster Magistrates Court of Lorna Jamous, who had pleaded not guilty to the offence of practising dentistry (tooth whitening in London) while not registered with the GDC. Following the successful appeal by the GDC, the case has been remitted to Westminster Magistrates Court for sentence at a date to be determined.

This makes it very clear that for tooth whitening, the only person you should visit is GDC-registered dental professional. Quite frankly, why would you want to go anywhere else?!
