A Royal Palm Beach woman is accused of practicing dental hygiene without a license.
Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies arrested 45-year-old Alexandra Gallego after a month-long investigation.
The Sheriff's Office says it executed a search warrant Thursday at a home off Oakwater Drive.
Deputies say Gallego told them that she converted a garage at that home into a dental office, and admitted to not having a license in Florida to practice dentistry.
Gallego had been seeing approximately 160 patients a month, according to her arrest report.
She's now facing charges of Practicing Dentistry without a License, and Unlawful Use and Control of Dental Equipment.
