Dentist found guilty of failing to wear gloves and urinating in sink - Guardian
Really this beggars belief! - Read it for yourself... Here is an extract:
"A long-serving dentist who cleaned his ears and fingernails with sterilised instruments intended for examining patients was yesterday found guilty of threatening his patients' health and erased from the dentists' register.
Alan Hutchinson, 51, was also found guilty of urinating in his surgery's sink and routinely working on teeth without washing his hands or wearing anti-infection gloves. He denied most of the charges, only admitting at a three-day hearing of the General Dental Council that he sometimes avoided gloves because of a latex allergy. The other claims, he said, left him "stunned into silence"."
