Oral health care includes diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic services provided by general dental practitioners, dental specialists, dental hygienists and auxiliaries, and other trained primary care providers.

In 2000, HIV Health Services began to develop a Quality Management Program for HIV/AIDS services in San Francisco. As part of this program, HIV Health Services and the HIV Health Services Planning Council (CARE Council) identified a need for service delivery standards in San Francisco.

All of the existing HHS standards of care were reviewed and evaluated by the HIV Health Services Planning Council over FY-2014-15, finalized in May of 2015, without any revisions required.

ORGANIZATIONS FUNDED THROUGH HHS THAT OFFER ORAL HEALTH CARE ARE:
  • SFDPH/CHN/ Tom Waddell Health Clinic (dental care now at Maria X Martinez Resource Center)
  • University of Pacific School of Dentistry
