    The ex-wife of a South Florida man who was arrested for performing illegal dental work last year has been arrested on similar charges, Davie Police said Tuesday.

    Luz Rios-Ossa, 49, was arrested for illegal dentistry out of a home in the 6600 block of Southwest 49th Street, Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.

    She was taken into custody at a gym in Miramar and booked into jail. She later posted bond and it was unknown whether she has an attorney.
