There’s a dentist in my area that has a billboard offering free teeth whitening. Is this safe?

I don’t know what dentist you’re talking about, so it is hard for me to give you a judgment based on anything but a guess. However, there are circumstances I know of where dentists offer free teeth whitening.
Some do it as a new patient special. For instance, as long as you come in for your cleanings, you can get the whitening at no cost. Or some just offer that to established patients. Other’s have it as part of their practice’s discount dental plan.
It really all depends on your dentist. Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest and safe procedures, so you probably don’t have too much to worry about.
