Okay, so a couple of weeks ago I read this thread by SloAnPainful:
Health officials in Oklahoma urge HIV, hepatitis testing for 7,000 patients of Tulsa dentist,

I went to the oral surgeon this afternoon and have to go back Monday morning to have some teeth cut out. I will be knocked out while the procedure takes place. Even though the oral surgeons office is immaculate and many people I know have used this particular guy (and they all give him rave reviews) I cannot get this thread out of my mind.

Oh ATS....what have you done to me?

It made you more situationally aware!

That's a beautiful thing

I am truly sorry Littled for spouting fear porn and make you nervous...


If you use the same dentist and you have been there before (possibly many times?) you are okay. The preticular dentist in the thread was very lazy and, for whatever reason, did not get regulated by the gov't. You can blame both of them if you want my opinion.

If you are afraid just ask some questions before you have your procedure. Ask when the last time they were inspected and what their rating was/or if they passed.

Again I was not trying to "scare" anyone, and I am sorry if I did. I just thought the topic was ATS worthy and wanted to get the story out.

I wouldn't be worried. My daughter is a dental assistant. The problem with that oral surgeon in Tulsa is that he used untrained, unlicensed "assistants" who had no idea about things like sterilization procedures, etc. The dental assistants that are trained and licensed are very careful with sterilizing instruments and keeping the area you are being treated in clean, as sterile as possible, and that all used needles are disposed of in biohazard containers.

If you are nervous, just ask to see the DA licenses....they are supposed to have them on site as proof that anybody poking in your mouth, giving you x-rays, etc., is properly trained and licensed by the state.

...and that was my entire point, aside from getting it on to ATS was to make people aware that this can happen. Although it is very rare.

Actually even though I am extremely nervous I did my homework on this man. He is the best and most highly rated oral surgeon in the entire area, and I made it my business to talk to as many people as I could find who have used him before. I also was a nosey broad when I was in his office today and even inspected the cleanliness of the inside of cabinets and drawers and even checked out the baseboards. I watched him put on fresh gloves and put the tools he put in my mouth into an autoclave himself ( I asked his assistant when he left the room and apparently they have an autoclave in every single exam room).

I still can't help but be paranoid, but don't be sorry! Hopefully someone who read your thread is as paranoid as me and it could save their life if they notice things that aren't quite right! Besides, Doc prescribed me some "chill" meds for surgery day so I will hopefully be more relaxed come Monday!

There is a difference between being aware and being paranoid.

Paranoia is ok if you really are being followed...

I would expect nothing less. Most people assume that because someone has been practicing for a long time and went to school for years is responsible and motivated.

However that thread shows that anyone and everyone should be looked at the same way. With a little research and asking some questions you could save your own life and others as well.

I wish you all the best Littled. (I tend to trust my gut and my gut is telling me you will be 100% fine)

Paranoid? There's nothing to be paranoid about. Just ignore that funny little van you see parked down the street from your house. They always deliver flowers there and spend hours sitting in the truck doing paperwork.



There is absolutely NOTHING to be paranoid about, now go back to sleep.

I have been made totally aware, maybe overly aware.
And I'm pretty sure I'm being followed most of the time......at least that's what the voices keep telling me!

I don't know why they keep sitting there in that van.
All they have to do is ask the neighborhood "peeping Tom" what I'm doing.
They're just wasting resources and my tax dollars!

Thank you FissionSurplus!
Yes, everybody who works in his office (small staff) are actually surgical assistants (he also does jaw and nose surgery). They have an entire wall covered in framed licenses, certificates and degrees and his assistant saw me looking at them and smiled. Still can't stop thinking about that guy in Oklahoma though.

Littled you will be fine. But if you are worried, ask him!!! and make sure to look him in the eye.

Remember you are on ATS that thread shouldn't scare you. If I was worrying about anything I got in my head from here, I would be worrying about a probing, while I was out.

When I joined the military and went to the dentist, they told me I had "ridges" on both bottom 2nd molars. They said they weren't cavities, and they were not hurting anything, but they were going to drill them and fill them anyway.

You seen those movies where the Govt. makes people's heads explode with remote devices.....

Be paranoid, be very paranoid.
