Following seizure of dental equipment last month from a house in Meadow Heights, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency has raided further premises in Meadow Heights and Roxburgh Park where there is evidence dental procedures may have been provided. There is concern that further patients have been put at risk of contracting a blood-borne virus as a result of poor infection control practices. Anyone who believes they or a family member or friend may have been a patient of an unregistered individual is asked to call DHHS on 1800 356 061 to receive advice from trained health staff more information
