Maintaining confidentiality in a look-back investigation of patients treated by a HIV-infected dentist.
The spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from a Floride dentist with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) to several of his patients has generated considerable concern about the risk of HIV transmission during dental treatment.
Accordingly, self-reporting of HIV infection and subsequent AIDS by a dentist at our medical center prompted notification and testing of patients at risk.
