North Port, Fla.-based police shut down a dental office that was running its operations out of a home garage, according to WFLA, an NBC affiliate.

Police arrested Enrique Gravier and Adriana Hoyos Gutierrez for allegedly running the illegal dental practice and practicing dentistry illegally.

Neighbors in the area claim people have visited the garage dental practice for the last five years. Inside the garage, photos show two exam chairs and a tray of tools. Patients allegedly visited the practice for a range of services, including cleanings and braces.

Fellow North Port dentist Christian Becker, DDS, expressed concern for if the tools and equipment in the illegal dental practice were properly sterilized.
