The Role of the Dental Profession in Addressing the Human Immunodeficiency Virus Epidemic

By Stephen N. Abel, DDS, MSD; Sanjiv Shah, MD, MPH
Summary: The early days of the AIDS epidemic were pervaded by “misinformation, panic and fear,” write commentators Stephen N. Abel, DDS, MSD, and Sanjiv Shah, MD, MPH. The work by Dr. Sol Silverman Jr. and his colleagues took a scientific approach to an emotion-fraught topic. These investigators not only provided dentists with essential clinical information for treating patients with AIDS, but they also issued a call for an interdisciplinary collaborative care model that has become increasingly the norm with AIDS— and with other diseases.
