From St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office
The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for a woman unlawfully practicing orthodontics in St. Bernard Parish, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.
Aireon Davis, 28, whose last known address was in the 1200 block of Mehle Avenue in Arabi, is wanted for practicing dentistry without a license.
On June 22, Sheriff Pohlmann said, detectives with the Criminal Investigations Bureau received a complaint from the parent of a 15-year-old female who said Davis put braces on their child’s teeth without their consent and charged them money.
During the course of the investigation,detectives learned Davis was advertising the illegal orthodontic business on Instagram under the account “bracee_yourself” and running it out of her apartment.
Based on this information, detectives obtained a search warrant for Davis’ apartment. Davis could not be located, but detectives retrieved various dentistry tools and orthodontic supplies from the residence.
According to Louisiana law, no one is allowed to practice dentistry without first being authorized and issued a license by the Louisiana State Board of Dentistry. According to the board, Davis does not have a license to practice dentistry in Louisiana.
The investigation is ongoing.
