Fake Dentist Arrested

Police in Georgia have arrested a man they say was performing dentistry out of his home using tools he bought at a local hardware store.
Police in Carrollton, Georgia arrested 31-year- old Earnesto Estrada, on Friday on drug charges and practicing dentistry without a license.
When authorities searched the suspect's home, they found a dentist's workshop complete with a drill and drill bits purchased from a hardware store, and packs of teeth.
A detective says Estrada was pulling teeth and giving injections to patients that included children.
Police say Estrada is an illegal immigrant from Honduras.
Records show he had more than 150 patients, most of whom were also illegal immigrants who didn't have health insurance.
