A woman has admitted carrying out illegal tooth whitening in Salisbury.

Faye Hill, from Salisbury, ran a mobile tooth whitening business and used a self-administered system of whitening.

She pleaded guilty to unlawfully carrying out dentistry at Salisbury Magistrates' Court and was given a 12-month conditional discharge.

Ms Hill was prosecuted by the General Dental Council (GDC) for the offence which took place at Pear Tree Apartments in Mill Road last month.

She has never been registered with the GDC.

By law only dentists, dental hygienists, dental therapists and clinical dental technicians working to the prescription of a dentist can carry out tooth whitening procedures.

Ms Hill was also ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge, and costs of £600.
