Emmanuel Osaseri was pretending to be a dental hygienist, providing dental care without the proper training or licensing. The police worked closely with the British Columbia College of Oral Health Professionals (BCCOHP) to stop Osaseri as quickly as possible.
CTV News reported that as of January 22, Saanich police are now searching for Osaseri after being released from custody as they believe “he has breached or is about to breach the conditions of his release.”
One of the conditions of release was that Osaseri not attend any dental care setting unless he had an appointment. The police believe he may be attempting to perform unqualified work again and have issued a province-wide warrant for his arrest.
