On 10 May 2013 judges at the High Court in London convicted Ms Jamous of the two offences. The case has been remitted to Westminster Magistrates' Court for sentencing. The GDC has pointed out that only dentists, dental hygienists and dental therapists (working to the prescription of a dentist) can carry out tooth whitening.
The background to Lorna Jamous case is that the GDC alleged she had:
(i) unlawfully practised dentistry, namely tooth whitening, at 88 Fountain Court, Buckingham Palace Road, London, SW1W 9SU on 27 December 2011 contrary to sections 38 (1) and (2) of the Dentists Act 1984; and
(ii) carried on the business of dentistry on or before 27 December 2011 contrary to sections 41 (1) and (1B) of the Dentists Act 1984.
