The HRSA Community Based Dental Partnership (CBDP) Program funds twelve programs across the nation to address gaps in oral health care for PLWH and increase the dental workforce to treat HIV and other vulnerable patients. Multi-site evaluation of students’ knowledge, attitudes and practices was conducted with 6 sites over the past two years to determine the impact of this program on students and their intent to provide care for HIV and other vulnerable patients in their future practice. This panel presentation will include results of the longitudinal student study conducted over the past two years. Presenters from three CBDP sites (Nova Southeastern, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), and University of Louisville) will describe their program, including the clinical training for students, education methodologies for HIV and other infectious diseases, and results from student reflective essays about the experience.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the CBDP program’s role in training dental students in working with HIV infected patients in the dental setting.
  • Discuss findings related to changes in students’ attitudes and knowledge in providing dental care to HIV-infected patients.
  • Review recommendations for educational methodologies in training future dentists to provide oral health care to HIV-infected patients.
