SALT LAKE CITY -- Police arrested a Salt Lake City man accused of practicing dentistry without a license for more than a decade.

According to the Deseret News, the Utah Attorney General's Office said Daniel Vasquez was arrested for investigation of 10 counts of license to dispense violation and possession of a controlled substance.

The office said Vasquez operated in Utah for the past five years -- treating people at his home.

When detectives searched the home, they found dental tools, xylocaine and anesthesia. Vasquez told investigators he used the drugs on patients.
