Starting a Teeth Whitening Business: 3 Tips for Non Dental Professionals

Are you considering venturing into the world of teeth whitening business? Before you dive headfirst into this profitable industry, there are crucial aspects you need to be well-versed in to ensure your success and the safety of your clients. In this blog post, we'll discuss the top three things you should know before starting a teeth whitening business.

Tip #1: Understand Percentages of Teeth Whitening Products Allowed for Non-Dental Professionals

One of the most fundamental aspects of running a teeth whitening business is understanding the types and percentages of teeth whitening products that are legally allowed to be used by non-dental professionals. Teeth whitening products contain active ingredients like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which are responsible for the whitening effect.

Regulations regarding the use of these products can vary from place to place. In many countries, non-dental professionals are allowed to use teeth whitening products with lower concentrations of these active ingredients. Higher concentrations typically require a dental license to administer.

To keep yourself and your clients safe, it's crucial to research and comply with your local regulations. Using products with illegal concentrations can lead to serious legal consequences and harm to your clients' dental health.

Tip #2: Understand the Application Process and Legal Implications

Whether you or your clients are applying the teeth whitening products can have significant legal implications. In many jurisdictions, only licensed dental professionals are legally allowed to apply teeth whitening products directly to a client's teeth. This means that if you plan to offer a service where you or your employees apply the product, you may need to collaborate with a licensed dentist or work under their supervision.

Failure to adhere to these regulations can result in hefty fines, legal troubles, and damage to your business's reputation. It's vital to consult with legal experts and local authorities to ensure you're following the law in your area.

Tip #3: Consent Forms Do Not Excuse Compliance with Tips #1 and #2

While obtaining signed consent forms from clients is an essential practice in the teeth whitening industry, it's important to understand that these forms do not absolve you from complying with regulations regarding product percentages and application methods. Consent forms are essential for transparency and ensuring that clients understand the risks and benefits of the treatment. They do not, however, grant permission to bypass legal restrictions.
