Three patients of dentist who used rusty instruments and reused needles are confirmed to have HIV



After months of testing hundreds of patients of a Tulsa dentist who is accused of unclean medical practices, results have been revealed that will send a chill through anyone who had sat in the dentists' chair.

The Tulsa Health Department says three patients have tested positive for the HIV virus which causes AIDS, 70 patients have tested positive for hepatitis C and a further four patients have tested positive for hepatitis B.

At one time, it was believed up to 7,000 patients may have been exposed to blood-borne viruses at the clinics of Dr. Scott Harrington in Tulsa and Owasso because he used filthy instruments in their mouths.
