A man in Moorpark, California who had a dental care clinic running out of his apartment has been arrested for practicing dentistry without a license.
40 year old William Escobar’s bathroom was converted into a makeshift dental clinic, where he had a dentist’s chair, anesthetics, false teeth and other dentist related equipment.
Authorities have found evidence that Escobar treated several people for dental problems. They were alerted when one of his patients contacted them about Escobar threatening him for not paying his bill.
Escobar is facing felony charges for practicing dentistry without a license and misdemeanor charges for the possession of needles and for furnishing dangerous drugs to his patients.
