UCLA School of Dentistry
Oral Health Care Announcement 

 

Access to oral health care for all people living with HIV remains a critical – and unmet – goal. UCLS School of Dentistry has been awarded Ryan White Part A funding to help meet these needs and provide comprehensive dental care at no cost to the patient.

Patients will receive diagnostic services such as exams and radiographs; preparatory work such as cleanings and removal of tooth decay; and restorative care including extractions, fillings crowns and other prostheses, and periodontal surgery. There will also be an emphasis on prevention and early detection of oral diseases by periodic oral cancer screenings and teaching patients about the importance of proper oral care.

Patient must meet certain eligibility requirements including:
• Los Angeles County resident
• A person with confirmed HIV infection
• Having income below 400% of federal poverty 
• Person having no other funding source for services
• Patients may be referred from other agencies or self-referred.

For patient screening eligibility and enrollment, please contact
(310) 794-4348

Services will be provided at:
UCLA School of Dentistry
10833 Le Conte Ave Los Angeles, CA 90095-1668
