East Naples Florida practicing dentistry out of his apartment

Two thing I thought when I read this:

1. Suddenly some state is concerned with sanitation??  OMG!
2. Is in home dental offices in our near future to escape the corporate dental care? Hey, as long as they are licensed, have the equipment and supplies they prefer instead of the cheap shit dentists are forced to use by corporate idiots, I’d be a patient.

An East Naples man who has been practicing dentistry out of his apartment is not actually a dentist, according to Collier County sheriff's deputies.

Detectives got wind that Luis Fernando Suarez-Paz, 51, was taking patients at his apartment at 108 Santa Clara Drive, reports said. Last week, an undercover deputy set up an appointment with Suarez-Paz to be examined because of a toothache. The undercover deputy was taken into a small room in the apartment with a reclining chair, dental instruments and a dental exam light, according to an arrest report.

Suarez-Paz examined the deputy, told her to get x-rays taken "at a real dentist office" and then bring them back to have a root canal performed. Suarez-Paz said the exam was free but the root canal would cost $350 over four visits, reports said.

Detectives found no record for Suarez-Paz with the state's department of health and could not find a medical or dental license issued for him in Florida.

On Thursday, deputies executed a search warrant and found "a very dirty and unhygienic environment that had outward appearances of a dental office," reports said.

Suarez-Paz faces charges of practicing dental hygiene without an active license and operation of a dental office by a non-licensed person.
