This Week in Health Department Disciplinary Announcements

Posted by on Fri, Nov 2, 2012 at 3:24 PM

Last week, I wrote about my (probably unhealthy) fascination with the state's DoH disciplinary announcements. Here's an item from this week's newsletter.

In October 2012 the Unlicensed Practice Program notified [redacted] of its intention to issue a cease-and-desist order for performing veterinary dentistry without a credential as a veterinarian or veterinary assistant. Charges allege that [redacted] was paid $150 for aligning, balancing, and correcting teeth on two horses in February 2012. He later admitted to a Department of Health investigator that he had performed equine dentistry on the two horses. He represented himself as an equine dentist and advertised his services on bulletin boards in the Port Angeles area and on his website.

Ever wondered if there was an equine dentistry/gnathology museum? Wonder no more! (And be sure to click on the play button to hear the groovy tunes of the Equine Gnathological Training Institute, Inc.)

You should check out the legal disciplinary pages sometime. There's some crazy stuff there too.
