Oklahoma Dentist-caused HIV exposurePosted May 29, 2013 Posted in News
The alleged unsanitary practices of an Oklahoma dentist may have exposed patients to HIV and hepatitis, according to a number of media sources and the Oklahoma Department of Health (DOH).
As dental professionals, this saddens us. Keep in mind that these are currently just allegations made against the dentist at this point in time and have not been proven by the state of Oklahoma, pending a hearing to be held on April 19th, 2013.
In light of the national attention, we want to ensure our Sensational Smiles patients that our office if fully trained with the highest technology in sterilization. We are compliant with the CDC, OSHA and respective ADA guidelines to prevent the spread of infections. We even go above and beyond and have our very own Sterilization Coordinator.
