HIV and the Mouth: Dental Assistant Seminar CSU Orange Campus

A three hour seminar titled "HIV and the Mouth" was offered to dental assistants of Orange and the surrounding towns on Saturday the 31st of May.

Dr. S R Prabhu Senior Lecturer at the School of Dentistry and Health Sciences in Orange was the presenter at the seminar. Topics included the basics of HIV/AIDS, oral manifestations in HIV/AIDS and the occupational risk and exposure of HIV in a dental setting. The event was coordinated by Mrs. Jenny Bevear, Senior Dental Assistant at the Dental and Oral Health Clinic of the CSU in Orange.

40 dental assistants including those from Dubbo and Bathurst attended the seminar and actively participated. Feedback received is extremely positive which points to the need for HIV related seminars in other CSU dental centers in regional New South Wales.
