    On February 23, 2010, members of the Vice Unit conducted a joint investigation with the Florida Department of Health, concerning an individual who was practicing dentistry without being properly licensed.  The investigation revealed that Timothy Isom Gurley was performing dental procedures at 12425 North Florida Avenue in Tampa.  The location was advertised as Doctor Max L. Gurley, D.D.S..  Doctor Max Gurley is the father of Timothy Gurley and was present at the scene during the investigation.  Timothy Gurley performed general dentistry while working under the supervision of his father.  This investigation was initiated when a victim came forward with information.  After a consultation with another local dentist, the victim cooperated with the Florida Department of Health Unlicensed Activity Unit and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.  The joint investigation concluded with the admission by Timothy Gurley, post Miranda, that he has been practicing dentistry without a license.
