A Snellville man accused of acting as a doctor without a license to do so, and causing some of his patients to become disfigured, was arrested just before Thanksgiving, the Gwinnett Sheriff’s Office announced on Friday.
Gerardo S. Lossada was arrested by the Sheriff’s Office Investigative Services Unit on a charge of practicing dentistry without a license. His bond was set at $1,300, but jail records show he has released from the county jail on Nov. 23, which was the same day that he was arrested.
Law enforcement began looking into Lossada after officials received complaints from patients about the results of procedures he conducted on them.
“This investigation began due to reports of Lossada causing pain and disfigurement on individuals he performed procedures on,” Deputy Ashley Castiblanco said. “A search warrant executed at the residence exposed evidence of dentistry and orthodontics procedures.”
Castiblanco said here is an ongoing investigation into the case. The Georgia Dentistry Board is working with the Sheriff’s Office on that investigation.
