Krista Szewczyk, was arrested on August 23 and faces 40 charges of practicing unlicensed dentistry and three counts of writing illegal prescriptions, which ultimately put the health of those who relied on her at risk.

She has been accused of practicing dentistry without a license with a $ 5,000 bail.

"The company is only a commercial services organization, which means we do not do dentistry or participate in the decisions that are made between the dentist and the patient," explains the county dental providers website.

Patients were seen going to appointments at the last Cobb County seat, which kept its doors locked, but provided the entrance when calling.

"There are numerous new victims who are now under investigation, and we will have to follow up on those allegations and determine whether to resubmit them to the grand jury," Rollins continued. "We will continue to answer those calls and investigate the allegations as they enter."
