Ontario Dental Clinic Patients Need Hepatitis, HIV Testing

Patients of a Lindsay dental clinic are being told they need to be tested for hepatitis and HIV.

The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit says it launched an investigation into the infection and prevention practices of the Lakeland Clinic.

In a statement, the health unit says the clinic, at times, may not have properly sterilized equipment.

The investigation was initially launched after the health unit was informed about a person who had recently been diagnosed with hepatitis C. That person had received treatment at the clinic.
