DENTAL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM
CBDPP was first funded in FY 2002
to increase access to oral health
care services for HIV-positive individuals
while providing education and clinical
training for dental care providers,
especially those located in community-based
settings. To achieve its goals, the
CBDPP works through multipartner collaborations
between dental and dental hygiene
education programs and community-based
dentists and dental clinics. Community-based
program partners and consumers help
design programs and assess their impact.
program components include the following
- Increasing access to
oral health care for people
dental and dental hygiene students
and postdoctoral dental residents
with training in the management
of oral health care for patients
the training of the next generations
of oral health providers to enable
them to manage the oral health needs
of immunocompromised populations.
