Monica Davis, who had been touted her business, The Veneer Experts, on social media, is now under investigation for allegedly scamming “several patients.”

Davis had already been charged with operating without a licence in Las Vegas, but according to new accusations, she continued to see patients in Illinois — with brutal consequences.

Davis touted her dental business on TikTok as “changing lives one smile at a time.”

Monica Bailey, a patient who visited Davis with her 15-year-old daughter, alleged she was fitted with fake braces.

Bailey underwent the procedure less than two weeks after Davis was released from custody in Nevada.

“It’s hard. It is,” she told WBBM. “I’m just hoping that we can have a positive outcome.”

Bailey alleged that Davis “cleaned my teeth and started, you know, putting the glue on and putting the brackets on for the braces and I thought what she was doing was how it’s supposed to be done.”

But when she tried to contact the so-called dentist for a follow-up appointment, one number was disconnected while no one answered a second.

“It’s crazy to me that she can do this in Las Vegas and post bail, and you come here and do the same thing,” Bailey alleged. “It’s like you have no fear.”

Ralph Jones, another patient, claims the $2,000 veneers Davis gave him started “falling out” and he has no idea what was actually “put inside [his] mouth.”

Jones explained, “They just started decaying and falling out, and over the course of the years, it just started making my appearance look pretty bad.”

Davis is scheduled to appear in a Las Vegas court in May.

No word on whether she will appear in front of an Illinois judge, but WBBM reported that could happen “soon.”
