Search For Juvenile Patients Of Dentist Under Investigation

Posted: Updated:

    Oklahoma's Office of Juvenile Affairs says it's working to track down at least 191 former patients treated by Tulsa oral surgeon, Dr. Scott Harrington, who is under investigation for unsanitary conditions at his clinics.

    The patients were housed at the L.E. Rader Center in Sand Springs, which was the only maximum-security juvenile facility in the state.  It closed in 2011.

    The OJA says the agency went back to 1995 records to generate the list, which it provided to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.

     In March, the Health Department urged Harrington's roughly 7,000 patients to get tested for hepatitis and HIV after finding unsanitary conditions at his clinics in Tulsa and Owasso.

    Officials at several health agencies could not immediately confirm whether the juvenile patients were included in the master patient list.

    An attorney for Dr. Harrington has said his client is cooperating with investigators and that his record with the Dental Board is impeccable.
