HOUSTON, TEXAS — Police confiscated dental equipment from a west Houston office and arrested two people who were allegedly practicing dentistry without a license.
Carolina Flores-Paz, 36, and Enrique Eduardo Alvarez, 47, were arrested Monday at Delta Image Makers in the 11000 block of the Katy Freeway. The office has a warehouse exterior, but inside police say they found rooms with dental chairs and equipment.
According to court records, both Alvarez and Flores-Paz admitted to practicing dentistry without a license. A confidential informant told police about the clinic.
The informant and an undercover officer went in for dental work Monday and when Flores-Paz allegedly offered to make bottom dentures for $800 after taking a dental impression, she was arrested.
