A dentist has been jailed after continuing to practise after being suspended by the General Dental Council.
Amir Kamburov, 42 (8.1.72) of Poplar Road South SW19 was jailed for 24 weeks at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 4 November after having previously pled guilty to two counts of false representation and one count of unlawfully practising dentistry at Wimbledon Magistrates Court on 24 October. He was also required to pay £1,000 compensation to the victim and £400 Court costs.
Kamburov was suspended from practising dentistry by a General Dental Council professional conduct committee for clinical and behavioural misconduct on 11 July 2012.

He was jailed for seven weeks at South West London Magistrates Court in December 2012 when convicted of two counts of making false representation and three counts of practising dentistry when not registered, after he tried to obtain drugs with a prescription written by himself. He was released from prison on 21 January 2013.
Despite his suspension, a week later on 29 January 2013, a 30-year-old woman was treated by Kamburov at his home practice in Poplar Road South. She was treated on further occasions between April and October 2013 at the Morden Dental Practice, Crown Lane, Morden.
Detective Constable Mark Smith from the MPS Drugs Directorate said: “Kamburov thought he could operate outside of the law. He was wrong. Unregistered dentists and unregistered doctors are a danger to the public. If you receive treatment from a private doctor or dentist it is easy to check whether they are appropriately registered via the relevant regulatory body website – the GMC or GDC.”
