Oklahoma Dentist Responsible for Hepatitis C Outbreak

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A Tulsa, Oklahoma dentist is responsible for the nation's first transmission of Hepatitis C between patients in a dental office.

Doctor Scott Harrington's dental practice was shut down in March when it was discovered he used rusty equipment and his staff reused needles.

Current and former patients were notified and health officials recommended that they have blood tests.

More than 4,000 people have been tested so far and 89 came back positive for Hepatitis C, five for Hepatitis B, and four for HIV.
