Thousands of people who went to a bad dentist in Oklahoma are now being urged to go to a doctor in a public health scare.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy reports:

Oklahoma health officials urging 7,000 patients of Dentist W. Scott Harrington to seek medical tests.

Kristy Bradley is with the Oklahoma Health Department.

(Bradley) "Patients of Dr. Harrington's were at risk of exposure to infectious material that may have contained Hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis C virus, or HIV."

The Health Department says the patients may have been exposed to viruses at clinics operated by Dr. Harrington who voluntarily closed his clinics and is cooperating.
