High cost of dental brace placement lead people to fake solutions
The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) is shocked with recent reports in the media of fake dentists offering illegal orthodontic or dental brace placement services resulting in severe health consequences for the patients. Consumers utilising such services risk HIV and Hepatitis infections, tooth decay and gum disease. These fake service and procedures are done by unqualified persons at a fraction of the normal price. Consumers are lured to these services by the affordable price. CAP is of the view that the high cost of orthodontic procedures is one of the key factors leading consumers to seek illegal treatment.
