About 1,500 dental patients may need to see a doctor.
A certification board in British Columbia issued a warning after Tung Shen Wu—also known as David Wu—was declared unqualified to practice dentistry, according to the College of Surgeons of British Columbia.
The college raided Wu’s bedroom, which was used as this illegal clinic. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation obtained video showing dirty and unorganized conditions, dusty shelves and a lack of sterilized water, among other problems.
It’s conceivable that the patients—mainly Chinese-Canadians—were exposed to HIV and hepatitis B or C. These patients were urged to be tested for these diseases.
