Tulsa, Okla. - The director of the State Board of Dentistry plans to hold a news conference sometime this week, to announce the findings of their investigation of a Tulsa dentist.
Susan Rogers says they can't identify the dentist, or even the reason for the investigation, until the investigation is complete.
It was revealed last week that a complaint had been made against a Tulsa dentist, but the nature of the complaint is unclear.
She did say however that the dentist is not being allowed to practice while the investigation is going on.
"Part of the investigation is not practicing right now, so that part is not a concern as of today or as of, you know, the middle of last week," Rogers said.
She said only a small percentage of dentists ever come under investigation, somewhere in the range of three to five percent.
But she said the State Board keeps records of every dentist who has even been investigated, if consumers want to examine the records for the dentist who they use.
