As HIV has evolved, so has the organization. HDC’s integrated model seeks to work hand-in-glove with physicians, mental health centers, drug, and alcohol treatment agencies, and with nutritional counseling and tobacco cessation programs. On an annual basis, HDC performs more than 10,500 dental procedures and is the dental home for over 1,200 active patients of record. We have successfully created a model that provides the highest level of quality care with successful results.
HDC has certain core values by which we define ourselves, and relate directly to diversity and inclusiveness. These values are Service, Leadership, Community, Civic Engagement, and Compassion. These guide our philosophy of work, how we relate to each other and to the larger community we serve. HDC supports inclusiveness by valuing all people and serving them in an environment that is respectful, honest and which builds on significant participation and input from those we serve.
I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University school of Dentistry and have been dental care for patients for over 18 years and having been working here at Howard Dental Center for about 7 years.
