will be made for documenting the number of patients with HIV/AIDS treated and uncompensated costs incurred providing oral health services to them.

Community Based Dental Partnership aims to increase access to oral health care services for HIV positive individuals, while at the same time providing education and clinical training for dental and hygiene providers, located in community-based settings.

This is achieved through multi-partner collaborations between dental and dental hygiene education programs and community-based dentist and dental clinics, marked by shared expertise and resources.
Examples of Funded Projects

Funds were awarded to eligible dental schools and post-doctoral dental education programs for reimbursement of uncompensated costs of oral health care and the number of HIV positive patients treated during the prior year.

Community-Based Dental Partnership grants fund collaborative partnerships between dental and dental hygiene education programs and community-based dental providers and organizations.
