Dr. David Reznik, DDS | Director of Oral Health, Grady Health System

In 2019, HHS released a new initiative known as the Plan to End the HIV Epidemic. Understanding this plan and the roll that the dental profession can play in helping patients stay engaged in care and referring or providing HIV screening are important to ensure success. Oral health is an integral component of primary care. As stated in the Surgeon General’s report: “Oral Health in America”, one cannot be healthy without oral health.

Join Dr. David Reznik, Director of the Oral Health Center of Grady Health System’s Infectious Disease Program, for a 1-hour webinar covering information on the important role of the oral health care team regarding the overall well-being of people with HIV (PWH).

Oral Manifestations: HIV: Early Signs A Person May Notice Inside The Mouth

Opera News | August 11, 2023


Oral Health in America: Advances and Challenges is a culmination of two years of research and writing by over 400 contributors. As a follow up to the Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health in America, this report explores the nation's oral health over the last 20 years.



Meeting the Dental Needs of People Living With HIV:
“We’re Taking Care of the Whole Person”

For longtime dentist David Reznik, D.D.S., director of the Oral Health Center of Grady Health System’s Infectious Disease Program—an Atlanta-based program he founded 30 years ago—he and his team have seen firsthand the pandemic’s toll on patients. During the past year, Reznik has focused on ensuring that both providers and consumers of dental care have the safest possible visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
