Oklahoma dentist who ran unsafe clinic gets home arrest for money laundering

(Reuters) – A former Oklahoma dentist was sentenced on Thursday to six months’ home confinement for a federal money-laundering charge stemming from complaints his unsanitary practice exposed at least one of his patients to hepatitis and could have exposed thousands to HIV. W. Scott Harrington, who pleaded guilty to fraudulently billing the Medicaid federal healthcare program, also received two years’ probation. Health officials shut down his two Tulsa-area dental clinics in 2013 and he surrendered his license in 2014 after the Oklahoma Dental Board cited Harrington for health and safety violations that put his patients at risk.
