Pennsylvania health officials say they found dead mice and insects near a Reading dental office’s sterilization unit, according to an article on the NBC Philadelphia website.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health says an investigation determined the Center for Family and Specialty Dentistry did not follow appropriate infection control procedures to properly clean, disinfect or sterilize devices.
Officials are advising patients who visited the facility between December 19, 2015, and October 19, 2016, to get tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.
Health officials say they found at least two dead mice, cockroach-like insects and flies on the floor of the office’s basement where instruments were sterilized.
