Fake dentist could be jailed

30th September 2010

A woman from the West Midlands who posed as a dentist has admitted carrying out work on hospital patients despite not being qualified.

Vinisha Sharma, 37, of Willenhall admitted forging qualifications and earning £230,000 by deception and has been warned by a judge at Wolverhampton Crown Court that she could face a prison sentence. Sharma, who claimed to have a degree from the Sri Guru Ram Das institute in India, admitted one count of using a forged degree and four counts of obtaining a pecuniary advantage.
