Memphis dental clinic at risk for HIV, hepatitis

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

Patients of SPD Dental in Memphis, TN, may be at risk for H-I-V, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.

The clinic closed July 1 after a patient complained to the Tennessee Board of Dentistry about unsanitary conditions.

Investigators later found bloody gauze on the floor, a sink covered in dirt, and evidence that Dr. Alfred Brown re-used dental crowns on patients.

Investigators are now encouraging everyone who visited the clinic to get tested.

No word yet if Dr. Brown will face criminal charges
