Oklahoma dentist investigation

Oklahoma - About seven thousand patients of an Oklahoma dentist are being urged to get tested for HIV and Hepatitis.

Investigators say the dentist's instruments weren't being cleaned properly despite the fact many of his patients carried infectious diseases.

Officials say they simply don't know how long this problem has been going on.

Letters are going out to patients who have gone to the dentist's clinics in Tulsa and suburban Owasso since 2007.
