LOUISIVLLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Health officials warn that thousands of people are at risk after they may have been exposed to potentially fatal diseases.
We're told about 7-thousand patients at a Oklahoma oral surgeon's office may have been exposed to hepatitis and HIV.

The 64-year-old, who's been practicing for more than 35 years, could face criminal charges.
