2 Texas men arrested for operating illegal dental practice

Two Texas men were recently arrested and charged with running an illegal dental practice, abc13.com reported Dec. 5.

Alberto Alanis Flores and Jose Alfredo Uzeta allegedly operated the practice out of a second-story office space in Houston. The front door of the building allegedly did not have a business or doctor's name posted on it, according to the report.

A unnamed source told the news organization that the Houston Police Department first showed up to the building Dec. 4 to investigate a report of sexual assault. The police officers then learned that the two men did not have a license to practice dentistry. 

Mr. Uzeta was also charged with indecent assault for allegedly assaulting a patient during her visit.
