NORTH PORT, Fla. (WWSB) - A North Port woman was arrested and charged after investigators say she was offering unlicensed dentistry services out of her home.

Ekaterina Gennadyevna Seletskaya told investigators that she had been a dentist in Russia before moving to the U.S. In October, a complaint was made to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office that Seletskaya was offering dental services in her home to local Russian and Ukranian patients via word of mouth in the Warm Mineral Springs community.

A complaint said that Seletskaya was accepting cash payments for fillings, crowns and root canals. A search warrant turned up dental instruments and tools. She continued to deny doing dental work without a license.

She is charged with practicing dental hygiene and dental assistant services outside of a license. The two charges are both felonies.
