Laurel Eich, who is not a dentist, is now facing multiple felony charges, according to a release the Washoe County’s Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook yesterday, July 16.


Patrol deputies on May 3 responded to an after-hours alarm call at a dental office on Sun Valley Boulevard. They found signs of a break-in and discovered that a total of $22,861 was stolen from a cash drawer.

They identified the 42-year-old Eich as “a person of interest in the planning and execution of the commercial burglary,” according to the sheriff’s office.


Upon further investigation, authorities also found out that Eich had performed 13 tooth extractions on one person at an earlier date and time.
