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.
