When was the last time you visited your dentist? And your physician? How about a clinic that tests you for sexually transmitted viruses?
Public health officials report that most Americans see their dentist more often than their physicians each year, so why not combine a few procedures? In NYC, Dr. Catrise Austin is doing just that. With the unnerving amount of people who do not know their sexual health status, she's found a way to have frank talks with her patients about HIV. Much in the same manner as she would gum disease. Read this piece at CarnalNation: Going to the Dentist for an HIV Test Funny, when I was in my early 20s, I was having work dental work done. Mouth was bleeding heavily. I remember my long-time dentist asking me if I had AIDS (jokingly, I think) because he came in contact with so much of my blood. I wasn't offended, in fact, it made me very aware of the risks he was taking by working in such a bloody environment. Seems like the perfect place to get an AIDS test.
