DAYTON — “At least 535 veterans who received care at the Dayton VA Medical Center’s dental clinic from 1992 to July 2010 will be offered free screening to see if they were infected when a dentist failed to change his Latex gloves between patients.

The veterans will be tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV, Dayton VA Director Guy Richardson said Tuesday.”
