Hearing To Get Underway In Tulsa Dentist Lawsuit

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A hearing is slated to get underway as an oral surgeon accused of keeping filthy office conditions at his two Tulsa-area clinics seeks to have a lawsuit dismissed.

Sharon Fairchilds says Dr. W. Scott Harrington was negligent when he allowed two of his office clerks to perform sedation on a child.

Harrington’s attorneys are asking that their lawsuit be tossed out of court.

A hearing on that request is scheduled to begin Monday morning in Tulsa.

A complaint filed by the state of Oklahoma said officials found rusty instruments and improper use of a machine designed to sterilize tools at Harrington’s offices.

Last month, investigators said Harrington was responsible for the nation’s first transmission of hepatitis C between patients in a dental office.
