John Collazos, 47, was arrested Monday and faces one count of practicing dental hygiene without an active license, according to a complaint affidavit.
A Florida man accused of performing illegal dental work was arrested again after police said he had administered a shot for a woman's toothache and then kissed her buttocks.
John Collazos, 47, of Hollywood, was arrested Monday and faces one count of practicing dental hygiene without an active license, according to a complaint affidavit.
Hollywood Police said Collazos posed as a dentist and treated the woman, who paid him as much as $65 for his services in a Hollywood apartment.
Collazos put a paste in the woman's mouth to help alleviate pain from a toothache. After she continued to complain of pain, he told her she would need to pull her pants down to administer a shot, the affidavit said.
Then, in a room fully equipped with dental equipment, the man touched her private area and kissed her buttocks, according to police.
The woman told police officers that Collazos did not answer her when she asked him why he touched her.
Collazos was previously arrested in September after Davie Police said he performed illegal dental work out of a warehouse.
"He was, for lack of a better term, preying on people whose immigration status may have been questionable and had no other place to go and he used that to his advantage to get these people into his business," Davie Police spokesman Dale Engle said.
