TULSA - Three more people filed lawsuits against Dr. Scott Harrington Wednesday, the dentist already linked to 65 cases of positive hepatitis C tests.
The dentist, who voluntarily closed the doors of his Tulsa and Owasso offices in March after news of unsanitary and inappropriate practices at the facilities first broke, now faces seven suits from six former patients.

All three lawsuits cited criminal negligence.
Harrington, whom 2NEWS tracked down in Arizona following the Oklahoma Health Department's announcement, is yet to face criminal charges.
