Dental radiographer surrenders license after officials say she practiced dentistry at her condo

Miami-based dental radiographer Regina Cespedes has voluntarily surrendered her license after she was accused of practicing unlicensed dentistry out of her condo, the Miami Herald reports.

In February 2019, Ms. Cespedes was arrested on a preliminary charge of performing dental services without a license at her home, according to the report. However, the state attorney's office did not file charges against her. According to the Miami Herald, Ms. Cespedes instead completed pre-trial intervention on a drug charge.

Miami-Dade police said they saw possible dental patients leaving her condo, which had "a dental chair, a dental radiograph machine, lidocaine, and other dental tools, drugs and materials," according to the report.

Ms. Cespedes voluntarily relinquished her license and agreed to never reapply for licensure as a dental radiographer in Florida, according to a March 10 final order by the Florida Board of Dentistry.
