Practice fined for illegal dentistry

The General Dental Council (GDC) has successfully prosecuted Community First for Treatment Ltd which had dental practices in Eastfield Road in Peterborough and Main Ridge in West Boston for the illegal business of dentistry on two occasions in the last two years.

Community First for Treatment were convicted in their absence of the two offences at Peterborough Magistrates Court on 15 February.

As Community First for Treatment was receiving payment for dental work when the majority of its directors were not GDC-registered dentists or dental care professionals it was committing a criminal offence under the Dentists Act.

Community First for Treatment Ltd was fined £1000 (£500 per offence) and ordered to pay a contribution of £3000 to the GDC’s costs.
