Underground dentist: Jesus didn't need a license to help people, neither should I

Underground dentist not remorseful about illegal practice

From the piece:

Delao admits he skirted the law, but isn’t remorseful. “Jesus Christ didn’t need or didn’t have a license,” Jose Delao told Yahoo News during a jailhouse interview. “People hurt and they needed it. People didn’t have enough money to visit the regular dentist.”

Delao, who says he is a trained dental lab technician, claims he couldn’t turn his back.

“It broke my heart,” he said, tapping his chest, “because I have the experience.”

But authorities say Delao, a native of Costa Rica, has never been a licensed dentist in Texas. If convicted, he could get two to 10 years in prison.

“This guy was doing some pretty intense work in some cases,” said Plano police officer David Tilley.
