A dentist in Santa Fe will fix your teeth for a fraction of the cost, provided you dont mind him working with tools from a dirty tackle box.
Eliver Kestler Eliver Kestler, or El Dentista as hes allegedly known to clients, is in Santa Fe County jail on charges including practicing without a license, distribution of a controlled substance, attempt to commit a felony, conspiracy and a warrant in a traffic case.
Kestler, 36, of Santa Fe, is accused of running an unlicensed dental practice, making home calls to clients in his red 2001 Chevrolet, according to a report written by Santa Fe Police Sgt. Mario Salbidrez. Photographs from the police show a dirty tool or fishing tackle box containing drill bits, syringes, false teeth and vials of drugs.
Salbidrezs report alleges that he contacted Kestler and said he had a toothache. Kestler asked if his tooth had a hole, and the sergeant said he didnt know but was in a lot of pain. Kestler said he could meet him off of Agua Fria Street within the hour.

That's a crime? Isn't that sorta like NOT committing a felony?
A guy just can’t make a buck any more. Damn government regulations!........
What, no Black & Decker cordless pus-auger?
I wonder how much he charges... Mine costs a fortune
I recall that they arrested some woman for giving silicone injections in lips and butts. She was using silicon from tubes bought at Lowes. They caught her because a couple of her patients died. Apparently, many (less educated?) people see WAY off book medical practitioners.
Westervelt said police interviewed one of Kestlers former patients, who said he paid $80 for dental work, including crowns and a new tooth, done on April 9. She was not sure whether the man had any complications from this dental work.
What could go wrong?
Dang, and this guy was the only one in network for my company’s new plan.
“he paid $80 for dental work, including crowns and a new tooth, done on April 9. She was not sure whether the man had any complications from this dental work.
I’m sure it’ll be fine.
Got obamacare already huh?
When corporate sends you a letter with the line “These changes will help you appreciate the costs of medical coverage...” you know you’re screwed.
A tooth for a tooth!
The tackle box looks ok to me
“Gimme two crowns and a Mepps Spinner.”
