A Jacksonville man has been arrested for the third time after practicing dentistry without a license, according to a report.

For over two decades, Jose Vicenty has allegedly been treating patients under the guise of a licensed practitioner, but his jig is up — again.

Police busted the 56-year-old man on Wednesday and hauled him to the Duval County jail, where he's being held on $75,000 bond.

Vicenty knows the process well.

In 2009 he was arrested on the same charge, according to News4Jax. In this case, Vicenty was caught by an undercover agent who arrived at his office wearing a wire and complaining about a tooth problem.

Upon further investigation, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office allegedly discovered nearly 100 pages of appointments that had been logged, with the names of patients and amounts of money paid or charged appearing in the documents.

Vicenty served a year and a half in prison for pleading no contest.

The arrest report also referred to a previous charge of practicing without a license in 1998.

Nick Jones, a neighbor of Vicenty, told News4Jax that the news was unsettling to residents of East Arlington, Florida.

"Obviously, it's not supposed to happen in our neighborhood. We really don't want that to be here," he said.
