Susan Rogers, executive director of the state Dental Board, said Ramadan is not suspected of any wrongdoing, and may have been targeted by Hinojosa.
Hinojosa was hired by Ramadan and a different dentist as a Spanish translator as well as part-time dental assistant.
Rogers said neither dentist Hinojosa worked for spoke any Spanish, and relied on her or her daughter to translate for patients during procedures and to set appointments. But they scheduled appointments after the offices closed and forwarded office calls to their personal phones, she said.
Hinojosa and Salazar-Orozco performed unlicensed dental work on at least 22 adults and children, including extractions, fillings, bridges and other procedures, investigators allege.
Rogers said Monday that 48 victims have come forward, and as many as 100 adults and children may have been victims.
