Flagged because just reading this makes my teeth hurt:
Authorities say a pair of crooked Pennsylvania dental office employees ran an after-hours, word-of-mouth operation where they performed root canals, pulled teeth and installed braces without proper training.
Montgomery County prosecutors say they've identified three patients who received treatment from the impostors, but X-rays indicate there could be dozens more.
A grand jury report alleges 45-year-old dental assistant Cheryl Laing and 24-year-old receptionist Jessica Gullickson used the Bryn Mawr dental practice where they worked to provide low-cost services to uninsured patients.
One patient reported a tooth extraction was a painful 45-minute ordeal and another said the receptionist was left to "find the root" during a root canal.
Both women were arraigned Monday on charges including theft and conspiracy. Phone listings for them couldn't be located Tuesday.
Would you go to "after-hours under the table" anything for medical services? I'm wondering who they conned into being patients, especially for something like a root canal. Braces off makes slightly more sense, but something that invasive?Answer Question
