Fake Dentists Accused of Giving Patients Serious Oral Infections

Georgetown police have arrested two city residents who were allegedly working as illegal dentists in their apartment.

Police say 35-year-old Carlos Ruben Ramos-Martin and 41-year-old Delma Lopez-Ramirez were arrested Wednesday. The two illegal immigrants had tooth extraction tools, lidocaine, needles, syringes, dental powders and teeth molds despite not having a license as dentists.

Neighbors in the Crestwood Gardens Apartment Complex reported the illegal dentistry. Police were also told about individuals having serious oral infections after receiving dental treatment at the men's apartment.

An immigration detainer has been placed on the pair. The two only served Hispanic patients who police say were also illegal immigrants.
