Wide support for rapid HIV testing in dental surgeries

Infection Control HIV

More than 80% of oral health patients are willing to receive rapid HIV-testing in dental settings, which could help reduce the spread of HIV, according to a ground-breaking study revealed at a Sydney University HIV Testing Symposium.


The first of its kind study of 521 Sydney-based dental patients assessed patients’ willingness to undergo rapid HIV testing in dental settings. Rapid HIV testing is a screening test that swiftly detects the presence of HIV antibodies in a person’s body by testing oral fluids. Rapid HIV testing is currently unavailable in dental settings anywhere in the world although the technology has been widely available for a decade.
