The man inside, identified as Hugo Moraes-DeLima, said he was conducting dental referrals, police said.
When officers entered the hotel room, they discovered dental equipment, including dental drills, suction machines and a portable X-ray machine. They also found numerous bottles of amoxicillin and other medications.
As officers were arresting DeLima, a man came out of the bathroom with gauze in his mouth saying he had just undergone dental work.
DeLima was charged with practicing dentistry without a license and illegal sale of prescription drugs.
He is being held on a $35,000 bond.
