A Leesburg, Va., couple was charged with conducting unlicensed dentistry from their home.

Nelson A. Castro-Diaz, 47, and Matilde A. Lindarte-Vargas, 35, were both charged with practicing medicine without a license. That’s a felony. 

A search warrant execucted April 29 at their home in the 1240 block of Tennessee Drive revealed what appeared to be a full-service dental office and examination room in the basement of the home. The area included a receptionist desk, a waiting room and a dental chair that was situated in a separate room. 

Castro-Diaz and Lindarte-Vargas were both released by a Loudoun County Magistrate on a personal recognizance bond. The case remains under investigation and more charges are possible.
