A 40-year-old woman is accused of performing a root canal on another women and prescribing her antibiotics despite the fact that she's not a licensed dentist.

Luz Angela Jimenez-Mojica is charged with one count of unlicensed practice.

Jimenez-Mojica works at a practice in Hialeah Gardens, said police. The victim told police Jimenez-Mojica performed a root canal that left her in severe pain.
