Hispanic dentistry: Dallas police seek more victims of Honduran immigrant posing as dentist
Mario Sabillon-Mejia said that he was a dentist. Dallas police say that the Honduran immigrant was nothing of the kind. "We think he was just getting his experience by practicing on people," said Lt. Tony Crawford, who is supervising the investigation. Police say that they caught on to what Sabillion-Mejia and his accomplice, Tiffany Gonzalez, were doing when a woman came forward and told authorities that she became very sick with an infection after he pulled five of her teeth. Police believe that there could be dozens of other potential victims out there. Sabillon-Mejia, 33, and Gonzalez, 41, have been taken into custody. They are being held in the Dallas County jail on felony charges of practicing medicine without a license and two misdemeanor counts of possessing dangerous drugs. Sabillon-Meja is also being held on an immigration hold.
