Tulsa Health Department Continues To Test Former Dentist Patients For HIV/Hepatitis

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa Health Department continues to test patients for possible HIV and Hepatitis B and C exposure.

As of Tuesday afternoon, 2,232 people have visited the clinic. 

They are former patients of Dr. W. Scott Harrington, a midtown dentist who was reportedly found to have contaminated and unsanitary equipment.  He possibly exposed up to 7,000 patients over the years in his oral surgery practice, according to health officials.

Anyone who was a patient at Dr. W. Scott Harrington's dental practice should contact the hotline (918) 595-4500 to speak to a public health representative about testing for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV.

Screening continues this week at the North Regional Health and Wellness Center at 5635 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
