Albanian woman pretended to be a dentist and did root canals
"She diagnosed patients, she took X-rays, she injected patients with anesthetics, and she performed root canals," Bronx Assistant District Attorney Patrick McCadden said in court Thursday.
She also allegedly scheduled her own appointments with unsuspecting patients when Schoengold was gone, prosecutors said. She also allegedly went so far as to offer a discount for cash customers.
Valbona Yzeiraj claimed she had dental training in her home country of Albania, but prosecutors said she was neither trained nor licensed in the U.S. A judge has barred her from working in dentistry for the duration of her case.
The dentist became suspicious when patients returned with complaints and complications for work he had never performed, Jones reported. Some patients became sick, and one even got a terrible oral infection, prosecutors said.
The dentist fired Yzeiraj, who then tried to steal money from the practice, prosecutors said.
Valbona Yzeiraj faces several criminal charges including assault, reckless endangerment and attempted grand larceny. If convicted, she faces up to seven years in prison.
She pleaded not guilty. Bail was set at $20,000 bond or $10,000 cash
