Meet the rogue ‘dentist’ who is set to open the doors of his new denture clinic – despite having a conviction for using a pliers to yank out the tooth of a patient who was not anaesthetised.

Dodgy dental technician Denny Jacob is currently putting the final touches to his brand new CareDent Denture Clinic in Portlaoise, Co. Laois, ahead of its official launch next month.

Unfortunately, Jacob has not always been known for his careful attention to detail.

In 2013, he became one of the few ‘dentists’ in Ireland to be convicted of assault as a direct result of his job.

The 41-year-old was handed a two-year suspended sentence after he was found guilty of two counts of Assault Causing Harm and four counts of Unregistered Practice of Dentistry in Portlaoise Circuit Court.
