Description

This curriculum is designed to deliver hands-on instruction to simplify the implementation of best practices from the federally funded Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Innovations in Oral Health Care Initiative (Oral Health Initiative).

  • The role of oral health in total patient care of PLWHA,
  • Barriers that exist for PLWHA in accessing oral health care,
