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


Nearly half of Americans living with diagnosed HIV are 50 and older. Most contracted HIV at a younger age and are living longer because they are engaged in HIV/AIDS care and benefiting from effective treatments. However, a significant proportion contracted HIV after age 50: in 2015, 17% of new HIV infections were among persons over 50.

The World Workshop on Oral Health and Disease in AIDS have been held over the last 30 years and have proved to be invaluable in that they enable clinicians and scientists from more than 30 countries working in the field to provide excellent opportunity to meet experts, exchange ideas and information, strengthen and expand the academic collaboration on an interpersonal level.

HIV Oral Disease is now available FREE APP for IOS, Android, and Windows phones. Materials include recognition and management of common oral diseases seen in PLWH. Also included are Key Facts important to providing dental care for PLWH.

This effort was the results of a combination resources from HIVdent and the Mountain Plains AIDS Education and Training Center.

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.
