In Australia there is currently no formal training requirement to providing a cosmetic non-dental teeth whitening service. 

When you purchase a professional teeth whitening system or LED Accelerator lamp from Smile Easy we provide you FREE online training in video format so you can offer your customers the best possible teeth whitening service, experience and results.


 A non-dental teeth whitening technician in Australia can offer a cosmetic teeth whitening service  using an accelerator LED lamp with the maximum gel percentages as follows:

  • up to 6% hydrogen peroxide
  • 18% carbamide peroxide (note. only 1/3 of the strength of hydrogen peroxide)
  • non-peroxide.
