Juan Hermida Munoz rented a room in the back of the Alternativa convenience store on Main Street from the store’s owner, Maria Guaman-Castro, police said in a news release. Although police say he does not have a license to practice dentistry in the United States, Munoz allegedly provided dental care to patients there, including examinations, tooth extractions, anesthesia and cleanings.
“This practice puts patients’ lives at risk due to unauthorized and unsanitary conditions when receiving medical treatments,” police wrote in the statement.
It is unclear how long Munoz allegedly operated this illegal dental practice or how many patients he saw.
Police charged Munoz with unlicensed practice of dentistry and unlicensed medicine, and charged Guaman-Castro with conspiracy.
