A Florida dentist is cautioning patients against a Facebook post offering $400 braces from home, according to ABC and NBC affiliate First Coast News.

A woman offered $400 braces for children in a private Facebook group "Duval County Directory and Promo." First Coast News has chosen not to identify the woman, who also offered a year of dental services after the procedure.

Some people in the Facebook group claim the woman is a dental assistant performing orthodontic work from her home, but First Coast News did not verify this claim.

If true, that situation could present safety and health risks regarding proper licensing and FDA approval for any equipment used, Megan Moshea, DDS, a dentist at Jacksonville, Fla.-based Riverside Dental, told First Coast News.

First Coast News was not able to reach the woman who made the post.
