Fake Britain – Curing lights

Dr Palin explains
Dr Palin explains

It is the Bank Holiday and if you were watching the TV this morning you would have seen our very own Dr Will Palin on BBC’s Fake Britain.  Dr Palin was demonstrating the problems with dental curing lights imported over the Internet.  After comparing the imported lights against a reputable brand in the Biomaterials Lab at Birmingham Dental School,  he showed that were they not as efficient. Also the rise in temperature that they produce could be dangerous to the patient.  If you want to catch more then the programme is on BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days.
