Illegal dental clinic raided

POLICE and public health officials this morning (Nov 18) arrested a 51-year-old woman and charged her with operating an illegal dental clinic in the southern Thai province of Trang, the Thai-language Daily News reported.

The clinic is hidden behind the woman’s grocery store, which is used as a front to hide her illegal business.

The woman told police that she learned about dentistry from the Internet and bought all equipment online. Most of her customers are teenage girls looking for “fashionable teeth arrangement.”
