An unlicensed Beersheba clinic manned by someone who posed as a dentist has been shut down by the Health Ministry. The man, his name given as Yuri Blogalzov, was declared by the ministry to be a “danger to the public.”

Ministry inspectors said the clinic was dirty, without necessary sterilization, and an x-ray machine that had not undergone radiation tests and lacked medical records.

The clinic, at Derech Shimshon 27, is owned by Mark Goldenberg, who – the ministry charged – tried to prevent the inspectors from entering and tried to destroy evidence. Goldenberg was summoned to a hearing but did not appear. A shutdown order was issued, and a complaint was filed with the Beersheba police.
