Authorities say two Phoenix-area women have been arrested for allegedly performing unlicensed dental work on five unsuspecting victims at an office in Glendale.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office announced Wednesday that 45-year-old Melissa Pavey and 38-year-old Jolene Houchens are accused of performing unlicensed dental procedures including tooth extractions by utilizing drills, lasers and surgical tools.

Authorities say Pavey and Houchens have never been licensed as a dentist.

According to an indictment, the two women billed victims thousands of dollars to perform the illegal dental procedures.
