After Teeth and Skin, what’s next? Hair?

I read this article in the Guardian today and wondered if there are any dentists involved in the hair game. It strikes me that if someone has a need but they’re not sure who to trust the why not their local GDP? The same old horror stories are mentioned and Tom who was quoted in the article summed things up in a way that reminded me of plenty of dental stories. “Classic red flags are: ‘We can get you in tomorrow’, ‘We’ll offer you a discount’, and ‘We’ve just had a cancellation’,” Stevenson says. “What you want is a clinic who can’t get you in for six months; where the price is the price. But when you’re vulnerable, you hear what you want to hear and a lot of clinics know what buttons to press.” Other warning signs, he says, include claims of “guaranteed results”, “unlimited grafts” and “scarless surgery”.

Because transplant surgery involves cutting the skin, any provider in England must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC)….Beyond that, there is only guidance for clinics to follow….there is no law to prevent anyone cutting into a patient’s scalp…

I’m sure if I had this thought now there will be some entrepreneurial soul who is already doing teeth, skin, hair…and nails?
