I’m not a dental professional, can I still do this?
Cosmetic teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments and can help people achieve a brighter, more youthful-looking smile. While the demand for this service is high, many people may not realize that there are no prerequisites required to perform cosmetic teeth whitening treatments. That’s right – anyone (with proper training) can start offering this service, regardless of their education or background. Teeth whitening is one of the safest cosmetic procedures, when done right.
But wait, before you jump in headfirst, you may be wondering if you need to have a background in dentistry or a degree.
The short answer is NOPE. Teeth whitening is considered a non-restricted activity in Canada, meaning that it does not need to be performed in a dental clinic. This doesn’t mean you don’t need to know what you’re doing, it just means you don’t need to be doing it from a dentists office. Skipping out on professional training isn’t an option and can lead to liability issues stemming from dangerous ignorance, reckless product use, and incorrect information provided to clients. Don’t even get us started on the use of unregulated products found on Amazon that are imported from overseas.
No prerequisites are required, but training is.
You know how we mentioned that teeth whitening is one of the safest cosmetic procedures out there? Did you also read the part that said ‘when done right‘. This is the most important part to successful teeth whitening procedures and services. If you’re not being properly trained on teeth whitening products, services and applications – you might as well be applying bleach with a paint brush and waiting for the legal issues to come in.
Obtaining training in this industry is not only required to obtain insurance but also for your own professional responsibility and quality of services being offered to your clients.
Luckily for you, there are various ways to obtain this training, such as through online courses, workshops, or hands-on training with experienced professionals. These programs typically cover topics such as the science behind teeth whitening, how to select and use the appropriate whitening products, and how to communicate with clients about the treatment process and expected results.
At The Unicorn Beauty Depot, we offer comprehensive training programs to teach you how to safely and effectively perform cosmetic teeth whitening. Education is key to success, and we’re passionate about helping women start their own teeth whitening businesses. Plus, teeth whitening is one of the safest cosmetic procedures when done correctly, and with our training, you can confidently provide this service to your clients while maximizing profits and reducing liability issues.
It’s important to note that while anyone can start offering cosmetic teeth whitening services, it’s crucial to have a thorough understanding of the procedure and its potential risks in order to deliver the best possible results to clients. Students can build a successful career in this rewarding field by learning how to safely, professionally, and effectively perform the service.
Okay, now I really want in. Where do I start?!
If you’re interested in starting a career in cosmetic teeth whitening, it’s important to choose a training provider that can give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. Here are three things to consider when looking for a training provider:
- Curriculum: Make sure the training provider offers a comprehensive curriculum that covers all aspects of cosmetic teeth whitening. This should include both theoretical and practical components, so you can learn the science behind the procedure and how to apply the techniques in a hands-on setting. While teeth whitening is one of the easiest and safest to learn, our program includes in-depth training videos as well as an option to purchase 1-1 training if that’s more your learning style!
- Instructor expertise: Look for a training provider with experienced instructors who are experts in the field. They should have a solid understanding of the various techniques and technologies used in cosmetic teeth whitening and be able to share their knowledge and experience with students.
- Support and resources: Choose a training provider that offers ongoing support and resources to help you succeed. This could include access to a mentor or support network, opportunities for ongoing professional development, and resources such as marketing materials or business guidance.
By considering these factors, you can find a training provider that will give you the skills and support you need to start a successful career in cosmetic teeth whitening. Luckily for you, this is the bare minimum compared to whats offered at The Unicorn Beauty Depot. Our program and curriculum offers far more than we could ever convey, from business coaching resources, business building resources, mentorship, pre-made social media assets, marketing resources and so much more!
