A Santa Fe grand jury has indicted a man who was illegally practicing dentistry out of his car.

Eliver Kestler has been charged with four counts of practicing dentistry without a license and three counts of possession and disposal of dangerous drugs, as well as forgery and other charges.

Kestler was arrested by Santa Fe police in April after several people came forward to file reports. At that time, police searched Kestler’s car and found evidence of an illegal dentistry practice.

Kestler, who has been in jail since his initial arrest, is scheduled to be arraigned June 3.
