The Oral Health RRC trains providers (dentists, hygienists, assistants) in both public and private practice settings, faculty of dental and dental hygiene schools, district and statewide association meetings, conferences and study groups throughout New York and New Jersey.  The OHRRC is able to provide these trainings free of charge, through funding from HRSA.  The faculty are experienced educators, practitioners, administrators, and researchers in HIV and deliver trainings designed to address your needs.  We come to you, when and where it is convenient. The overall goal of the OHRRC is to train dental practitioners to recognize early signs and symptoms of HIV infection and to manage all aspects of patient’s oral health needs.
