456.     Offences.

It is an offence for a person who is not a registered dentist or registered dental care professional1 to practise as such or hold himself as such2. It is also an offence to carry on the business of dentistry when not registered as a dentist3.

The principles governing the general criminal liability of dentists and dental technicians are precisely the same as those which govern the liability of medical practitioners4.
