The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee and the Department of Health have thrown a book at three dental clinics which have fallen foul of regulations.

BF dental clinic at B1-12 Nam Thien Residential Quarter in Pham Thai Buong Street in District 7 was forced to pay VND143 million (US$ 6,178) fine because the clinic has provided treatment which is not included in its permit as well as employed foreign dentists without registration.

Before, the Department of Health had imposed a fine of VND42 million on I-dent at 193a-195 Hung Vuong Street in District 5 forcing the clinic to stop using radioactive source and radiation.

Moreover, the clinic was asked to remove advertisement of treatment without registration.

Beauty salon Thao Tay at 324 – 326 Tran Hung Dao Street in District 1 was asked to pay a fine of VND35.7 million because of unallowed advertisement and unfully written medical record as per the law.
