Indiana Dentists Indicted For Operating Farmhouse Dental Clinic article Dental clinic employees are accused of failing to take reasonable precautions to ensure patient safety after a patient fell ill, police said.
In a letter released Monday, the Indiana State Police said a man was admitted to an Indiana Dentistry clinic in July 2015.
Authorities said the patient’s condition worsened and he was diagnosed with an acute urinary tract infection.
Authorities said that man’s dental work at the clinic did not meet the state’s requirements for safety training.
The man was transferred to a facility in Collingwood, about an hour’s drive north of Indianapolis, the letter said.
When police arrived, they found the man dead.
Authorities have not yet released any other details about the man’s death, including the type of infection.
Police said they have not found any criminal wrongdoing by the dentists.
They also said there was no indication the men had been working together or that the work was supervised by someone other than the patients.
