Another fake dentist nabbed

A DENTIST’S son who is said to be illegally practicing dentistry was arrested by authorities in an entrapment operation inside a clinic in Bankerohan Tuesday afternoon.

Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) XI and the City Hall’s Anti-scam Unit arrested Emilio Pasagui right inside the dental clinic of his father at Marfori Shopping Complex in Bankerohan, Barangay 5-A, Poblacion District.

Atty. Exzel Hernandez, the NBI XI acting regional director, said the city chapter of the Philippine Dental Association (PDA) filed the complaint against the suspect who has been conducting dentistry procedure without license.

Agents confiscated the paraphernalia used in conducting the dentistry operation inside the clinic.

Hernandez said they are preparing a case against the suspect for violating R.A. 9484, the act regulating the practice of dentistry.

The suspect, now detained at the NBI office, will also be facing additional case for issuing medical certificate.

Probers are also studying the possible charge that they would file against the dentist-father who has been allowing his son to use his clinic. The father’s name was not released.

Pasagui is the third fake dentist to be arrested by authorities following complaint of the dental group.

 Earlier this month, the NBI arrested couple Rezil and Joelan Estoy, both of Isla Verde, also for practicing dentistry without license inside their house in Isla Verde, Barangay 23-C, Poblacion District.
