Police arrest cut-rate ‘dentist’ (Put him in charge of Obamacare)
Albuquerque Journal ^ | 2/23/13 | Bill Rodgers

Posted on 04/23/2013 10:44:00 AM PDT by woofie

A dentist in Santa Fe will fix your teeth for a fraction of the cost, provided you don’t mind him working with tools from a dirty tackle box.

Eliver Kestler Eliver Kestler, or “El Dentista” as he’s 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.

Salbidrez’s 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 didn’t know but was in a lot of pain. Kestler said he could meet him off of Agua Fria Street within the hour.

"attempt to commit a felony"

The feral government wants a monopoly on health care so they can decide who lives or dies.

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 Kestler’s 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.

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.

I love the part where the Doctor says, “I've done a lot of technical work... I've even repaired bicycles”. Maybe a street heart surgeon could be found at a MOTORcycle repair shop.

making home calls to clients in his red 2001 Chevrolet

LOL. What a sight! A cut-rate dentist that drives around in a beat up old car making house calls. Should be a character in a movie. Of course, when his cure for your tooth ache is to tie a string around the tooth and the other side of the string to his bumper and then step on the gas, you know you haev problems . . . .

Pick up the DVD of “The Aristocrats”. In the ‘Behind the Green Door’ segment George Carlin tells the story about “The Dirty Doctor”. It’s hilarious!! Stevie666
