Supporting HIV care through education and innovation

Topic: Part F - Dental Programs

Part F Dental Programs focus specifically on funding oral health care for people with HIV/AIDS, supplementing the dental care provided by other Ryan White programs. The Dental Reimbursement Program (DRP) helps accredited dental or dental hygiene education programs with unreimbursed costs of oral health care delivered to people with HIV/AIDS. The Community-Based Dental Partnership Program (CBDPP) delivers HIV dental care while simultaneously training dental professionals in order to expand community capacity to deliver HIV/AIDS oral health care.
