'Stop Illegal Whitening' debates at The Dentistry Show

Industry experts will come together at The Dentistry Show to highlight the dangers of non-registered dental practitioners providing tooth whitening

It was announced last week that a company that is involved in illegal whitening, will be allegedly exhibiting its whitening products and services, despite the fact that it does not employ a dentist or any dental registrants.

The debate entitled 'Stop Illegal Whitening', taking place on both days of The Dentistry Show, will see the following speakers:

  • Dr Payman Langroudi, clinical director of Enlighten Smiles
  • Dr Linda Greenwall, chair of the British Dental Bleaching Society 
  • Mhari Coxon, Phillips Oral Healthcare and Teeth Whitening Action Group
  • Beverley Carlyle, Stamp Out Illegal Teeth Whitening
  • Tony Kilcoyne, foundation dentists programme director, University of Leeds; clinical director, 4everlearning; and Stamp Out Illegal Teeth Whitening 
  • Ahmad 'Gomez' Nouno, Black Swan Dental Spa, BACD committee member and Stamp Out Illegal Teeth Whitening.

Discussing:

  • The latest brazen illegal activities of the beauty sector
  • A regulator update, and why is enforcement taking so long
  • What can dentists do to accelerate the enforcement process
  • Plus many other issues.

Dr Langroudi said, 'Regulators are working as fast as they can, but illegal whitening is still a regular occurrence at shopping malls, beauty salons, bridal fairs and now at a major dental exhibition. It’s important that the profession come together to highlight the risks to the public, and ultimately help to stamp out illegal whitening.'

The 'Stop Illegal Whitening' debates take place at The Dentistry Show on:

  • Friday, 12.30, Piazza Suite 4
  • Saturday, 2.30, Piazza Suite 4

I thought we were dental surgeons not snake oil salesman. I can't help thinking it would be better to leave charlatanism to the charlatans.
What exactly will we learn on this talk? How to rugby tackle beauticians who whiten teeth illegally? Surely trading standards need to attend in order to stamp out illegal TW. With the new regulations on tooth whitening and now hygienists getting direct access to patients then our days are numbered.
