Response from Dr. Young
Hi and thanks for posting.
I'm not connected with the care communities in Albany, but can appreciate your difficulties and needs. Ryan White funding doesn't necessarily provide all needs for all people, but let's make sure that all of the available programs have been discussed.
I'd be sure to speak to your case managers or medical providers for their recommendations and referrals to a dental facility. I'd also suggest looking at other free dental care programs (not necessarily limited to those who specialize in HIV care). A quick Google search yielded the following information.
I hope that helps. Good luck, BY
Very worried about meds taking time
Exactly what level of adherence to HIV medications is required to maintain virological control?
