Can anyone tell me which teeth whitening course is best?
I recently looked into spm academy but I cannot seem to find their website anymore. I'm worried this was not a kosher training school?!?

There is a reason why Allwhite laser is a Global Leader in the teeth whitening industry, thousands of systems are sold to salons and dentists worldwide. We are the pioneer of this technology. When you mention teeth whitening, it has to be Hollywood Whitening or nothing! Your customers want it, and your competitors hate it.

Naturawhite supplied me with Legal Cosmetic Whitening over one year ago. I also received one years insurance with my start up pack. I would recommend them, give them a call.
I was also very interested in this business and explored the non-peroxide market. I would recommend that you do your homework. If you can, try and visit the trade shows to see demonstrations and results. I found a few opportunities that allowed you to try before you buy. The results seemed pretty impressive; 2 had celebrity endorsements. One gave clients a money back guarantee. The cost of the franchise option is expensive, but you get a lot of marketing support. One allowed you to pay as you go, but the product was £50 per client and £150 per month for the light. I decided not to proceed following some market research in my area. The teeth whitening markets seems pretty much saturated by salons and people on Facebook who are offering the service for £40-£50. This does not leave a great profit margin after marketing, products, taxes and travel if you are mobile. Most businesses's that entail visiting clients break even at around £40.00-£50. The franchises RRP was around £149.00, which does generate a healthy profit. Good luck!
This cannot be true. After 7 or more years and hundreds of thousands of non-dentist treatments later the law has not changed. GDC Dentists are delivering training to non-dentists too! No one is allowed to harm the public; dentists as well as non-dentists using illegal levels of bleach can be prosecuted. Hence the recent prosecution brought against a dental group in Yorkshire in August 2012, which resulted in £10k in fines and destruction of stock low level HP stock, due to a complaint by the public. Dentists across the country continue to use HP between 25-35% and advertise the use of Zoom (25%HP), this is a blatant breach of the law; therefore instead of pointing the finger at non-dentist the GDC needs to focus on their own double standards. We never hear about doctors making claims about body piercing, tattooing Botox etc. being medical procedures that can only be undertaken by qualified doctors. All these procedures carry risk of infection or disfigurement. People have also died due to an allergic reaction to hair dye (containing peroxide), but it is still sold in supermarkets and used by hairdressers. This suggests that money not safety might be the motivation behind the allegation that bleaching teeth is dentistry. All cosmetic treatments carry some risk and consent is required; even hair dying can lead to severe burning of the scalp. Most people these days visit their dentists 2- 4 times a year and pay for treatment and advice. The dentist has a duty of care to advise their patients if they have poor enamel, gum disease, sensitivity issues etc. I have enamel erosion, but my dentist has never told me this or given me advice on how to prevent further erosion, I have treated myself! Many of my clients have been severely burned by their dentists and one experienced sensitivity for a year after her fourth bleaching treatment! More than one has simply dripped the bleach onto the patients’ lips and gums during the application procedure. I have carried out over 1500 treatments without any issues, other than occasional sensitivity! I would welcome a universal standard and certification as well as insurance for both dentists and non-dentists and then the public can make an informed choice.
hi i trained with impressions i can give you the trainers number if you want to phone her direct she came to me im fully certified also beware insure is alot more thatn beauticians insurance you have to have it on its own does not come under beauty therapist insurances.
There are like anything else alot of companies out there pretending to be viable so of course you have to be carefull....Have you paid for and taken the training already??? It really does annoy me that these companies persist in giving all the viable cosmeticians out there a terrible name.
Hi Sammie - thanks for raising this important issue - it is only legal in the UK for dentists or registered dental professionals to perform teeth whitening treatments of any kind. This is so that there is adequate aftercare for patients and also so that any dental issues the patient had could be diagnosed before whitening is prescribed. Please see this link for more information on how seriously this is taken in dental practice http://www.gdc-uk.org/Membersofpublic/Illegalpractice/Pages/Tooth-whitening.aspx
