I had work done as a kid at one dentist, then when I went to another one in my teens and had x-rays, was told the first one did a bunch of work I never needed and messed up big time. It was too late to sue the 1st one cause he died.

I bet you can guess what that did to my trust of dentists

That's too bad for those that tested positive so far. Terrible, terrible, terrible. Scarier too that it also means that their loved ones may have been infected to boot.
Thanks for the update.

One in 30 baby boomers has Hep C, and that's a pretty low return for Hiv. Here in Australia people living with HIV make up 0.1% of the population, it's nearly ten times that in America, I would have thought these results would reflect much higher infection rates. It's not evidence that he infected them, BUT it's obvious enough that he has exposed his patients to the risk of infection.

I agree


Plus there are recent studies that shockingly show that HIV transmission is quite difficult, and that it also may not even be what we perceive it to be. For example, they have never been able to isolate the virus. Hence, HIV may simply be a 'condition', something like a deficiency.

It may not be a transmissible virus.

No, it was literal. Your punishment would be jail and that's it. I'd go for something like giving him HIV as he did to others..
