The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office charged Nelson A. Castro-Diaz, 47, and Matilde A. Lindarte-Vargas, 35, with practicing medicine without a license.

An investigation by the Gang Intelligence Unit found that the couple's home at 1240 Tennessee Drive in Leesburg contained a full-service dental office, examination room, receptionist desk and waiting room.

The Sheriff's office says that the operation apparently catered to the Latino community.

Castro-Diaz and Lindarte-Vargas are free on bond.
