‘El Dentista’ competent to stand trial

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The man known as El Dentista, who was practicing dentistry out of the trunk of his car, has been found competent to stand trial.

Eliver Kestler is charged with practicing dentistry without a license in Santa Fe.

People were complaining that the man who went by the nickname El Dentista did sloppy work, pulling teeth and left people with unfinished dental work.

He kept his equipment in a tool box in the trunk of his old Chevy.

He was arrested last April and is still behind bars. His trial is set for August.
