Oral Health and Primary Care Integration for People with HIV: Connecting Clients to Oral Health Services
HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)
Presenters walked through the components of oral health and primary care integration and highlighted best practices and challenges for developing and maintaining a dental referral network, making referrals, dental patient navigation, and communicating data effectively between primary care and oral health settings.
These strategies are designed for all HRSA recipients serving people with HIV regardless of whether they oral health care directly, refer out for all services, or are somewhere in between. These practices are further outlined in the Integration of Oral Health and Primary Care Technical Assistance Toolkit.
