If you've been arrested for practicing dentistry or dental hygiene without a license in Florida, you may face serious criminal felony charges. This charge is a third-degree felony that is punishable by up to five years in prison. Florida prosecutors treat this charge as seriously as practicing medicine without a license. There are also heavy fines and penalties that follow. It is common for unhappy patients and competing dentists to call the police to begin an investigation. Often, an undercover officer will enter the facility to gather evidence and statements for prosecution.
