The suspect was caught in the act of practicing dental technology at her clinic located at the 2nd floor of the AGDC Bldg. in Bgy. Inocencio, Trece Martires City.

An investigation showed Rodriguez was operating without a certificate of registration and professional identification card, as well as a special permit issued by the proper authority, which constitutes a violation of Republic Act 9484 (The Philippine Dental Act of 2007) or An Act to Regulate the Practice of Dentistry, Dental Hygiene, and Dental Technology in the Philippines.
