The easing of the rules by the GDC now allows ‘dental hygienists and dental therapists can carry out tooth whitening on the prescription of a dentist, if they have the necessary additional skills’.
Although whitening is often considered as the entry level treatment for many patients, both hygienists and dental therapists must be able to show that they have undergone appropriate training in these techniques.
This course will give you the additional training you need to fulfil the GDC criteria and give you the confidence to carry out whitening procedures on your patients… with predictable results.
