    I heard it is pretty common in large metropolitan areas with diverse populations like LA, NY, and San Francisco. However, I don't think it goes to the extent as bad as that article...most of these non-licensed dentists know what they are doing and have nice offices...just aren't registered in America as dentists.

    And on SDN people say the general public won't go to a mall dentist or a Oral Health Practitioner. Think again...

    Someone with $20 who thinks he's getting a good deal because he gets $1 worth of wine in the process.

    Oh yeah. I was talking to one of my friends a month ago, and he was telling me that he and his sister have got all of their caries fixed by a dentist with no license for $35 each, and that is in LA.
