      Mom and daughter accused of performing dozens of illegal dental operations in court

      Monica Orozco, is accused of helping her mother perform illegal dental work

      A mother and daughter team who performed at least 48 illegal dental operations were in court Wednesday to learn their future behind bars.

      Elizabeth Hinojosa, AKA "Dr. Liz" and her daughter, Monica Orozco, both entered plea deals in Oklahoma County Court.

      The mother-daughter duo is accused by the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry of performing at least 48 dental operations after-hours for cash. In the process, the board says they scammed victims out of thousands of dollars.

      Hinojosa and Orozco were both arrested in 2012. The District Attorney has identified at least 48 victims including 10 children.
