Q. Will clinics providing only cosmetic treatments, such as tooth whitening need to be registered with CQC, as this does not involve treatment of a disease, disorder or injury? Secondly will non GDC registrants who provide tooth whitening services need to be registered?

Only providers of regulated activities must register with CQC. Purely cosmetic procedures will not trigger registration for treatment of disease, disorder or injury (in some cases they may still require registration, if they involve other regulated activities such as scaling and polishing prior to tooth whitening). GDC registration status is not relevant to the need to register with CQC.
