NHS England are appealing for anyone who was treated by a dentist who is accused of poor hygiene standards to come forward for testing.
Desmond D'Mello, who worked at Daybrook Dental Practice in Nottingham, allegedly failed to wash his hands and change gloves when treating different patients.
He is also alleged to have used the same instruments on patients without sterilising them.
"If there had been any transfer of blood between patients due to the lapse in infection control procedures there could potentially be a low risk that hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV virus could have been transferred from patient to patient," health officials said.
The recall has been sparked by concerns over a dentist who treated more than 22,000 patients over a 32-year period in Nottingham.Read the full story ›
