As relations between the two sides have decayed, some Connecticut "teeth-whitening entrepreneurs" have begun a legal campaign to overturn a rule passed by the state's dental commission in June that bars nondentists from offering the service.
But nondentists argue that the tooth doctors are just trying to protect their turf.
Dentists generally charge between $300 and $700 for a whitening session, which isn't normally covered by insurance, while nondentists charge between $100 and $150, according to the Federal Trade Commission.
In North Carolina, the state's dental board accused nondentists of engaging in unlicensed stain removal.
In July, the FTC ruled that the dental board engaged in "anticompetitive conduct" and ordered it to revoke its orders to nondentists.
Ohio's dental board permitted this right after they have established that while they do have so many concerns about the freeforall use of the supplies, whitening done by those who are nondentists is still safe just as long as they do not touch the person's mouths and that these consumers are the ones who position the light alone and put the material on their own teeth all by themselves too.
