viral load and dental hygiene treatment
Mar 1, 2001
Would you be able to tell me if a person with HIV is having the viral load testing done is there any side effects that would impact a dental hygiene treatment plan for the patient or the hygenist or doctor?
Thanks Courtney Dental Hygiene Student

Viral load testing is a routine blood test, and is not affected by a dental procedure. MH
