NM police look for more unlicensed dentist victimsApril 30, 2013 @ 11:38 am
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico investigators are looking for more victims of an unlicensed tooth doctor found operating as a "mobile dentist" out of a sedan around Santa Fe.
Authorities are asking all victims of a man known as "El Dentista" to file a report. Santa Fe police say they want to build a strong case against Eliver Kestler, also known as Eliver Lopez.
The 36-year-old was arrested April 20 following a tip from a former customer. Investigators discovered Kestler with a portable drill machine and other dental equipment in a small, red sedan.
Kestler told police he had a dentistry license in Mexico but no license in the U.S.
One woman told investigators she had teeth removed by Kestler but he didn't come through with replacements.
