    A man faces charges after authorities say he was doing dental tech work without a license,  Miami Police said.

    Cristino Ojedo Bravo, 72, was arrested on Tuesday when a bail bondsman called police because the bondsman, who was looking for a man in an unrelated case, went to 1260 SW 6th Street in Miami. When Bravo opened the door, the bondsman saw multiple dentistry devices inside the house.

    Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle talks about the arrest of John Collazos, who is facing charges of practicing dentistry without a license.

    Bravo told police he had been doing dental work for more than 50 years and that labs pay him $50 for each dental piece he makes.

    He "also said that business is sow and that is why he won't get a license," the arrest affidavit said.

    Police said a records check showed he doesn't have a license to practice dentistry tech work.

    He was being held on $5,000 bond and faces a charge of proprietorship by non-dentist.

    It wasn't known if he had an attorney.
