Samui: Woman arrested for running illegal dental clinic

Of all the things you probably wouldn’t ever want to use – a self-taught dentist. So thanks to the police on Samui for tracking down this alleged ‘cosmetic tooth doctor’.

A self-taught dental practitioner has been arrested on Koh Samui yesterday (Sunday) for opening an illegal clinic to attach fashion braces for clients.

Pol Lt-Colonel Sompol Buranathet, deputy commander of Koh Samui police station, said on Monday that 24 year old Sasiporn Robru, a local resident, had been arrested at a shop-house in Moo 4 village in Tambon Mae Nam.

Police seized equipment and eight dental braces from the property.

Sompol said police had acted following tip-offs by local residents that the shop-house was providing illegal dental services.

Police say that Sasiporn admitted that she had run the shop to attach fashion braces for clients for over a month, charging 300-800 baht per customer.

She said she used to work at a dental clinic where she had observed braces being fitted, and she later further studied the technique from watching YouTube clips.

She then bought fashion braces from a shop, opened her own brace-fitting clinic and promoted the business on her Facebook page.
