BLACK CANYON CITY, Ariz. (AP) — A dentist previously charged with doing illegal dental work in the Phoenix area has been arrested for the same crime in a neighboring county.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said 69-year-old Denis Froehlich was taken into custody Thursday night at his Black Canyon City home for practicing dentistry without a license and aggravated assault. His wife was also arrested.

Authorities say two victims accused Froehlich of leaving them disfigured and in serious pain.

Froehlich touted himself as a retired dentist who could work out of his home. ?In 2019, the Arizona Attorney General's Office charged him with fraud and working unlicensed.
