TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Two new cases of hepatitis have been reported in a health scare involving patients of a Tulsa oral surgeon whose clinics were found to be unsanitary.
The Tulsa Health Department says two new cases of hepatitis C were found among the thousands of Dr. W. Scott Harrington's patients who have been tested since March.
A total of 73 patients have tested positive for hepatitis C, five for hepatitis B and three for HIV, but there is no indication the diseases spread at the clinics. Health experts also say the spread of disease in dental clinics is extremely rare.
More than 4,000 of Harrington's patients have been tested so far.
Inspectors said they found unsanitary conditions inside Harrington's clinics at Tulsa and Owasso.
Harrington is cooperating with the investigation.
