The Tulsa dentist accused of unsafe practices that may have exposed thousands to blood-borne diseases breaks his silence. Tulsa attorney James Secrest, who represents Dr. Scott Harrington, released this statement on Harrington's behalf:

"For almost 35 years, Dr. Harrington has provided Oklahomans with dedicated oral surgical care. His previous record with the dental board is impeccable. He is taking the recent allegations very seriously and is fully cooperating with the Oklahoma Dental Board. At this time, out of respect for his patients and the sensitivity of the issues, Dr. Harrington will make no further comment on this matter."

It was the first response from Harrington since allegations levied against his practice were made public a week ago.
