Kitchen Dentistry

Police are looking for a Naugatuck, Conn. woman who apparently was practicing dentistry in her kitchen.  Checking out a tip, they found an office chair converted to a dentist's chair, dental tools, tooth molds, etc.  They did not find any sterilization or drainage equipment, other than the kitchen sink.  I guess she used her oven for sterilization, if she sterilized at all.  She apparently was a licensed dentist in Brazil, and couldn't afford the licensing and other expenses in Conn.

Wow. Part scary, part sad.

It reminds me of that one episode in ER where the scrub nurse cracks a man's chest and saves his life - turns out she was a top-drawer cardiac surgeon in Poland but had enough trouble with English that she couldn't get certified here in the US. It was actually one of my favorite episodes. But she did wear gloves...

This lady may have had skills, but obviously lacking in class and common sense.
