Two fake dentists who ran an illegal clinic arrested



The Guardia Civil, within the framework of the “OFICTUS” operation, has arrested two people in the town of Roquetas de Mar (Almería) for professional intrusion and injuries. The detainees worked and ran a supposed dental clinic that they had set up in a room of a house, without having the necessary authorisations and licences, nor the qualifications required for the development of said activity.

The operation began in November following a complaint filed by the College of Dentists of Almería in which a person, a resident of Roquetas de Mar (Almería), was practicing as a dentist without being registered in any of the Colleges of Dentists of the national territory.

As a result of this complaint, and another complaint made by a victim, the agents located two people who run an alleged dental clinic, located in a house near the Plaza de Andalucía in Roquetas de Mar (Almería).

Continuing with the investigations, it was found that both “dentists” were carrying out this activity without being registered in any Official College of Dentists in the national territory, and that they also offered dental treatments through the profile of a social network.

For this reason, these two people were arrested for the crimes of Professional Intrusion and Injuries.

At the time of the arrests, a wheeled suitcase containing basic dental equipment for surgeries and dental treatments was seized.

It should be noted that the victim underwent treatment that lasted more than a year and that injuries were caused due to interventions poorly performed by the supposed specialists.

The Guardia Civil recommends attending official centres or clinics, and not resorting to illegal ones that offer excessively reduced prices.

If you have any questions, any specialist is obliged to provide their membership number and be registered in the corresponding Official College of Dentists.
