TULSA - The medical hearing against a Tulsa dentist accused of exposing thousands of patients to HIV and hepatitis has been pushed to January.
The move comes only a week out from Dr. Scott Harrington's scheduled hearing. In a document released Thursday, the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry explained "both parties are in need of additional time to complete witness interviews, depositions and attend to pre-trial matters."
The discovery, along with a positive hepatitis C test from one of Harrington's patients, prompted the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Tulsa Health Department to advise more than 7,000 people to be screened for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.
