Tooth Whitening Deemed Illegal
Cosmetic dentistry is a booming business that generates billions in revenue annually. It is no wonder that there are plenty of dental wanna-bes who wants to get in on the action and one Warrington, London resident was just busted for trying to get his cut without the proper license required in the country.
Paul William Hill, the Director of PW Healthcare Consulting Limited, pleaded guilty to 4 offenses that included practicing dentistry while not being registered as a dentist or dental care in the local system. The charges were brought once it was discovered that Hill was performing tooth whitening procedures without having the proper documentation to conduct the task.
One Crime Leads to Another
A bungled burglary attempt in Newark, New Jersey not only ended up catching those criminals, but an operator of an illegal dental office as well. According to police spokesman Detective Hubert Henderson, two people were caught breaking into an office space and were charged with burglary. Further investigation showed that the space was actually an illegal dental clinic and when the office proprietor arrived at the scene, they were charged for running an illegal dentist's office.
While dental fraud is not a common occurrence, it is real and the activity happens worldwide. Individuals looking for a dentist need to conduct their due diligence in researching the task to ensure they are not erroneously putting their dental health and general well being at risk.
