An anonymous tipster called the Sheriff's Department and reported unattended boxes of personal records outside the dental office. The boxes contained patient records from the early 1990's to the present. These records numbered in the hundreds and had personal information such as Social Security numbers, names, birth dates, credit card numbers, and addresses. The Sheriff's Department destroyed the records and warned patients of dentists Lee, Sang H. Yoon and Patricia Patterson.
