Arkansas Recommends HIV, Hep Tests for 100 Dental Patients
Arkansas health officials are ordering blood tests for about 100 dental patients of a deceased dentist, The Associated Press reports.

Officials would not say how William Jarrod Stewart, DDS, died last year, except that his death was not the result of an infectious cause.
