A New Jersey man and his wife have been arrested after prosecutors said the husband illegally acted as a dentist at the practice his wife owns.

Oscar Guevara, an x-ray technician, had “unlawfully performed dental procedures” at Allure Dental in March 2018, although he is not licensed as a dentist in New Jersey and has no formal dental training, The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Guevara’s wife, Dr. Amy Rojas, is a dentist and the owner of Allure Dental, which has locations in Passaic, New Jersey and Teaneck, New Jersey. Guevara is listed as a member of the dental staff on the practice’s website.

The prosecutor’s office said that Rojas and Guevara sent bills to insurance companies for dental procedures supposedly performed by Rojas, but actually done by Guevara.
