EDMONTON - The patients of an Edmonton dentist who quit his practice in February after testing positive for hepatitis B will now be contacted and told about the situation.
Health authorities started calling patients of Dr. Byron Wong on Tuesday. Wong has practised in Alberta since 2001. Dr. Gerry Predy, vice-president of Capital Health, said the chance the disease was transmitted to any of Wong's 1,400 patients is very low - somewhere between one in 10,000 and one in 100,000.
