SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A Santa Fe man, known as “El Dentista” and who is accused of operating an unsanctioned mobile dentistry service, is back in jail.

State District Court Judge Glenn Ellington ruled this week that 37-year-old Eliver Kestler violated his conditions of release and ordered him jailed until his February trial.

A woman who received dental services from Kestler says he threatened her when she unexpectedly ran into him at a grocery store last month.

According to the conditions of Kestler’s release, he was ordered to have no contact with former patients who might be called to testify about his dental work.

Kestler has pleaded not guilty to practicing dentistry without a license charges.
