21 Years of Being Your Internet HIV/AIDS Oral Healthcare Resource

June 18, 2017 marked the 20th anniversary of the debut of HIVdent.org (HIV Dental Alliance)! We at HIVdent will never be able to sufficiently thank our numerous colleagues, faculty, supporters and the people we have been able to assist. I do want to mention our founding Treasurer, Jacque Muther; and Vice President, Helene Bednarsh, without whom this effort may have never come to be. None of this would have been possible without our initial web designer Jim Maddox and Delane McKinely who has kept the site up and running for these past 20 years. We would also be remiss not to thank our sponsors, notably Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals, both present and past - John Booher, Jerry Smith, Chris Fox and the one and only "Colgate Lady" - Mrs. Shirley Youngs, that have supported this effort since the very beginning!

The AIDS Institute invites you to join us for National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day (NHAAD), observed annually on September 18th.  National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness day focuses on the challenging issues facing the aging population with regards to HIV prevention, testing, care and treatment. In addition, there is an increased need for prevention, research, and data targeting the aging population, medical understanding of the aging process and its impact on HIV/AIDS.

 

In an effort to continually expand awareness about HIV among the aging population, organizations and community members are invited to develop, implement and participate in awareness activities and events on or around September 18th.

HIVdent's Mission

HIVdent is a not-for-profit coalition of concerned health care professionals committed to assuring access to high quality oral health care services for adults, adolescents, and children living with HIV disease. HIVdent disseminates state-of-the-art treatment information and shares expertise in advocacy, development, training, integration, and evaluation of oral health services for the HIV-infected population.

The primary mechanism by which HIVdent initially intends to accomplish its mission is via this web site. Inside, not only will you find several sections on the oral manifestations of HIV disease and a large picture gallery, but information on infection control, post-exposure protocols, pediatric/adolescent care, medications, funding and other resources.

Through an easily accessible e-mail system, health care professionals and consumers alike are able to communicate directly with our Faculty, some of the foremost international experts in these fields.
