The defendant was found guilty on ten counts concerning securing goods by false representation, attempting to secure registration by false representation, circulating a forged document and practising without a dental licence.

The man had been ‘practising’ dentistry from April 30, 2011 to September 18, 2018. During this time, he received payments of €57,000.
