Suspension ordered to NJ dentist after practice linked to 15 infections

Posted on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016    

The state of New Jersey recently stopped the practice of a dentist after one of his patients died and 14 others suffered from infections, an article of Fox News reported on September 3.

According to reports, John Vecchione agreed to have his professional license suspended after the Department of Health in August revealed that 15 of his patients who had undergone oral surgery had also been infected with enterococcal endocarditis. The patients were put into intravenous sedation during surgery. One of his patients reportedly died due to complications while 12 of his patients were required to undergo heart surgery. Inspectors last month found out that problems were still present in Vecchione’s Bud Lake clinic. Vecchione is expected to appear at a court hearing in October.
