A group of expatriates has been arrested by authorities in Riyadh for operating an illegal home dental clinic.

According to Emarat Al Youm, The General Directorate of Health in Riyadh responded after they received a tip, which turned out to be accurate, that a foreign blacksmith worker was working as a dentist in a private clinic with no medical qualifications or licenses.

The tip was followed up by the Director-General of Health Affairs in Riyadh, Dr Hassan bin Ali Al Shahrani and local police.

Upon finding the illegal clinic, all its activities were ceased and the group of expatriates, including the fraudulent dentist, were handed over to the police for further prosecution.

Health authorities reminded the public that inspections are regularly conducted on medical facilities and that severe penalties are levied on those who violate community health guidelines.
