TULSA, Okla.-  The Oklahoma dentist accused of endangering his patients is now facing a lawsuit. A former patient filed the suit against doctor Scott Harrington Wednesday.

She is currently virus free but got an infection after the dentist removed her wisdom teeth in 20-09.  Investigators say he may have exposed seven-thousand patients to H-I-V and hepatitis. 

The Oklahoma Board of Dentistry found numerous sterilization violations in his office.
