Man Arrested For Operating Fake Dentist Office, Using Power Tools On Patients
A man pretending to be a dentist in Chicago has been arrested after police say he operated a fake dental office, taking patients to an auto garage and operating on them with power tools.
Francisco Rendon was arrested Thursday after police found his faux dental lair on the Southside of Chicago.
Operating out of a rented room Rendon had a leather office seat for his patients and a garbage can for spitting instead of a sink.
Police also found syringes, dentures and pain killers. They also found tools including a power tool traditionally used to polish metal.
Rendon claims to have a dental license in Mexico but police say he does not have one in the U.S. or the required business license for his service.
He faces a misdemeanor charge of providing medical service without a license.
