The Philippine Dental Association released its public notice to the public regarding the do-it-yourself dental products. Below is the statement:
NOTICE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC
Notice is hereby given to the general public not to patronize do-it-yourself dental products sold directly or through the internet by certain companies. These products include among others such items like the ‘D.I.Y. Braces Orthodontic Kits’.
It is of high probability that self-installation of the so-called do-it-yourself products will lead to potential injury to the user in the absence of professional supervision.
In the interest of public safety, kindly report incidence, circumstances or suspicion of unauthorized/illegal practice of dentistry.
