TULSA - A booth at the Tulsa State Fair offering dental care has been ordered to shut down.
The state of Oklahoma and Board of Dentistry filed a restraining order and injunctive relief application Tuesday against Henry Johnson and Ingo Van Styn, who ran a fair booth as part of "Euroshine USA."
According to the filing, neither Johnson nor Van Styn have a license to practice dentistry or dental hygiene in the state.
Authorities were tipped off Monday about the operation, which posed as an authentic teeth whitening agency.
Dental board members investigating Euroshine USA found Johnson in medical scrubs and rubber gloves and treating customers.
No charges have been filed and neither Johnson nor Van Styn have been arrested. Practicing dentistry without a license is a felony carrying a penalty of $1,000 to $4,000 and one to four years in jail.
