Wesley Chapel man arrested for Dentist Practice in his Living Room

Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Jose Mas-Fernandez, 33, for practicing dentistry without a license in Wesley Chapel.

The arrest was the result of a joint investigation between the Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Health.

The Pasco Sheriff’s Office said Mas-Fernandez offered to pull teeth for both an undercover detective and an undercover health department investigator. He reportedly offered to provide antibiotics for $150 and numbing medication for $20.

Inside Mas-Fernandez’s apartment, law enforcement found dental equipment and other related medication. The suspect told detectives the supplies came from Cuba.
