Reality TV star Chelsey Harwood is offering £45 teeth whitening treatments that an industry regulator has warned could be illegal because they don't involve dentists.

The convicted benefits cheat has been advertising the treatments, offering to give clients a whiter smile in their own homes.

Reality TV star Chelsey Harwood is offering £45 teeth whitening treatments that an industry regulator has warned could be illegal because they don't involve dentists.

The convicted benefits cheat has been advertising the treatments, offering to give clients a whiter smile in their own homes.

Chelsey, a former webcam girl, has live-streamed video of the treatments being carried out and insists she isn't doing anything illegal.

The 30-year-old told the Liverpool Echo that the patients pop in a mouth guard on their own and she simply sells the treatments and offers advice.

But the General Dental Council (GDC) warned that treatments not carried out by qualified professionals including dentists could be illegal, and it is against the law to offer “advice or attendance” that would usually be given by a dentist.

Unqualified practitioners could be prosecuted and even fined as much as £5,000.

Chelsey, who is not registered with the GDC, defended her services and claimed that rather than operating as a dentist, she instead acts as a "private citizen".

She said: “I’m not acting as a dentist, we don’t act as dentists.  “I do not touch the patient, I hand them the mouth guard, they put it in their own mouth, they put the light to their own mouth. I am acting as a private citizen.”

She also claims that, before the teeth whitening is carried out, customers are asked to sign a waiver removing her of any liability for damage or malpractice.

The latest advice from the GDC states that ​only registered dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists and clinical dental technicians, working to the prescription of a dentist, can perform teeth whitening treatments.
