Part F: Dental Programs

Funds from all grant programs of the Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program support the provision of oral health services. However, two programs specifically focus on funding oral health care for people living with HIV: the Dental Reimbursement Program (DRP) and the Community-Based Dental Partnership Program (CBDPP). A key program element is funding of services and of education and training for oral health providers.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants for both the DRP and the CBDPP are institutions that have dental or dental hygiene education programs accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (e.g., dental schools, hospitals with postdoctoral dental residency programs, and community colleges with dental hygiene programs).

Grant Recipients

Grant recipients are dental education programs seeking to improve their response to the HIV  epidemic in their area.

Dental Reimbursement Program (DRP) Implementation

First funded in 1994, the Dental Reimbursement Program assists institutions with accredited dental or dental hygiene education programs by defraying their unreimbursed costs associated with providing oral health care to people living with HIV.

Community-Based Dental Partnership Program (CBDPP)

First funded in 2002, the Community-Based Dental Partnership Program increases access to oral health care services for people living with HIV while providing education and clinical training for dental care providers, especially those practicing in community-based settings.

To achieve its goals, CBDPP works through multi-partner collaborations between dental education 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.
