- In May, police arrested a woman accused of running an illegal dentist's office out of her west valley apartment. The entire apartment was rigged up to look like a dentists office.

Neighbors at her complex near 51st Avenue and McDowell had no idea what was going on inside. The Arizona Attorney General's Office says there is no record that Elda Graciela Margez de Zamora is licensed to practice in the United States.

Inside detectives found a bed with dirty sheets, a dentist style chair. and tools inside. Medical supplies were seen stored close to a toilet. 

Dr. Stephanie Wagner Kethcart says these photos from the Arizona Attorney General show an unsanitary and dangerous environment.  A kitchen..doubling as a sterilizing room and dental tools in the bedroom stacked inches away from a germy cell phone.


"All these instruments are just laying in there, a place where germs, bacteria, and viruses can land on all of these instruments. They should be in sterilized blue pouches.

Zamora is now facing a number of charges including fraud and is being held on a $20,000 bond.
