A local dental clinic is notifying nearly 30 patients that they may have been put at risk of disease. Peak Vista says some of their dental tools were improperly-cleaned at their main clinic in Colorado Springs. It’s at the International Circle location near Airport Road and Printers Parkway.

11 News started asking questions after a concerned viewer reached out to us. We sat down with President and CEO Pam McManus who tells us the risk to patients is low, but Peak Vista is taking full responsibility.

“I’ve been with Peak Vista almost 28 years and this has never happened before,” said McManus.

Peak Vista says 27 patients were potentially exposed to the dental tools on May 17th. The tools are generic instruments used in typical dental cleanings.
