Byron Alberto Zelaya, 58, and his son, Bryant Jesus Zelaya, 31, are charged with unlawful practice of dentistry, according to documents filed by Jim Leitner, assistant prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.

Byron Zelaya’s nephew, Omar Navarrete-Sevilla, 29, faces the same charge but at a misdemeanor level, according to KTRK-TV.

The three men were arrested on Monday and have since posted bond.

According to the district attorney’s office, the men practice dentistry without a required license issued by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners.

Byron Zelaya told police he was self-taught and had been practicing for about a year, according to KTRK. He added that he previously worked in a dental laboratory, the television network reported.

The men were reported by a patient who paid $2,000 for a cleaning and brackets in preparation for braces, KTRK reported. The man said he was alarmed by what he said were unsanitary conditions in the office, according to the broadcaster.

Thomas O’Brien, a dentist in Houston, told KTRK that it’s dangerous to receive dental care from people who don’t have the proper training and licensing.

“The results could be deadly,” O’Brien told the TV station. “You can end up with some sort of mouth deformity. The teeth do not grow back. If you break someone’s tooth, it has to come out. Not only can it kill you, but it can also alter your way of life. Proper sterilization of equipment is essential and I’d bet money they don’t sterilize instruments properly.

O’Brien added that there are low-cost dental clinics available in the area for uninsured patients.

Attempts to reach Zelayas and Navarrete-Sevilla were unsuccessful, KTRK reported.

ST. LOUIS – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – St. Louis’ major television stations began broadcasting today with NEXTGEN TV, a revolutionary new digital broadcasting technology based on the same foundational technology as the Internet and digital applications. Today’s launch includes KDNL-TV (ABC), KMOV (CBS), KSDK (NBC), KTVI (FOX) and KPLR-TV (CW).

NEXTGEN TV can support a wide range of features currently in development. In addition to providing broadcasters with a new and improved way to reach viewers with advanced emergency alerts, NEXTGEN TV delivers stunning video with brilliant colors, sharper images, and deeper contrast to create a more lifelike experience.

NEXTGEN TV adds a new dimension to watching TV, with vibrant video and a further enhancement of the Voice + dialogue that puts voices at the forefront. Cinema-quality sound allows viewers to hear every voice clearly and maintain a constant volume across all channels. NEXTGEN TV can also be enhanced with Internet content to allow viewers to get the most out of live sports, live news and live events in real time, without leaving the TV screen.

Powered by ATSC 3.0, NEXTGEN TV is the most significant broadcast technology upgrade ever. The features available on NEXTGEN TV will vary by device and station as broadcasters roll out the service across the country. Aerial viewers without NEXTGEN TVs can simply re-scan their TVs to ensure uninterrupted service. Rescan instructions are available at: fcc.gov/rescan. Cable and satellite subscribers do not need to take any action.

Today’s launch in St. Louis follows a decade of development and months of planning and preparation by local market stations. Owned by Nexstar Media Inc., KPLR-TV has converted to ATSC 3.0 transmissions and will broadcast both its own programming and the programming of other participating stations in the NEXTGEN TV format. Programming from all participating stations will continue to be available in the existing DTV format, which can be received on all modern televisions. BitPath, which develops new data streaming services, led the planning process and deployment efforts across the five TV stations.

From Seattle, Washington, to Washington, DC, the NEXTGEN TV service is already on the air in more than 30 cities across the country. Viewers in St. Louis can learn more about NEXTGEN TV by visiting www.WatchNextGenTV.com, which has a guide listing the cities currently offering the service, as well as links to available NEXTGEN TV models.
