Testing advised for patients of defunct clinic


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Patients of a now-defunct Marana dental clinic are being advised to be tested for blood-borne infections such as hepatitis and the AIDS virus because equipment at the clinic was apparently installed improperly.

Pima County health officials say there's no indication that infections were actually transmitted to patients of the T Dental Clinic on West Ina Road, and officials say the recommendation for testing is precautionary.

According to the county Health Department, the clinic closed in July 2010 .

According to the Health Department, dental records indicate that the situation may involve 174 individuals who were treated between January and July 2010.
