20 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 Hepatitis Policy Project invites you to visit our new policy-focused website on hepatitis C
While there is already an abundance of general information available on the etiology, symptoms and transmission of HCV, this site is intended to provide the latest policy actions and most timely and relevant information related to the HCV crisis.
Content consists of links to relevant articles, study findings, features from thought leaders in the viral hepatitis space, and summaries of current policy issues written by the Policy Project team.
Please share the link to the site in your respective circles, and contact Sonia Canzater, Hepatitis Policy Project Associate, at sc1574@georgetown.edu with comments or inquiries.

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.
