A dental clinic in Sydney has been found to have been using instruments that were not properly cleaned and sterilised.
Hundreds of patients who underwent invasive dental procedures at Dr Nicholas Southall’s Cronulla clinic in Sydney are now advised to take blood tests for hepatitis B and C and HIV.

The New South Wales Health and the Dental Council has contacted around 930 patients of Southall since 2003, advising them to see a doctor for testing for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV. The missive came after NSW Health’s two-month probe concluded that the dental clinic did not properly cleaned, sterilised or stored instruments properly. These could lead to spreading of viruses among patients.
