Unlicensed dentist to be sentenced

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield man is scheduled to be sentenced Monday, October 2, for practicing dentistry without a license.

Jose Hernandez pled guilty to the charges back in June.

According to the prosecutor, the attorney for Hernandez told the court his client was a dentist for 20 years in Mexico, but Hernandez did not have license to practice in the U.S.

He could not meet the requirements for American citizenship.
