Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Worried Dentist,

Your negative HIV-antibody tests out three years are definitive, conclusive, excessive and WOO-HOO-able. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted.

If you continue to have difficulty accepting the overwhelming and irrefutable evidence that you are HIV negative, you should consider seeing a psychiatrist or psychotherapist to help you confront and conquer your irrational HIV fears.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
