Health officials Thursday urged 7,000 patients of an Oklahoma dentist to seek medical tests for hepatitis or the virus that causes AIDS after discovering that instruments weren't properly cleaned despite the doctor's knowing that several of his patients carried infectious diseases.

This is why I go to a dentist who sends his instruments off to a professional sanitizing company who (as far as one knows), properly sterilizes them, wraps them, and seals them. They are unwrapped and removed in front of the patient, at each visit.

This has to be horrifying news for the people involved. I don't think I would be as worried about HIV as I would be with the Hep B and C. Hep can live on surfaces for up to 10 years if not properly cleaned.

I hope everyone is okay, and I hope the dentist is dealt with properly.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I went to the dentist this week. In a whole different state. I am going to have nightmares.

I think perhaps the dentist should be given the viruses he exposed others to and then refused all medical treatment other than isolation to protect others.
