Episode 5 "My Dentist Gave Me HIV/AIDS"

Going to the dentist is terrifying enough, without the fear of contracting a deadly illness. On this episode Karen and Jen are talking about the first person in the world to contract HIV/AIDS from a health care professional. In this case it was a University of Florida student, Kimberly Bergalis, who died two years after being infected with HIV/AIDS by her South Florida dentist when he pulled her wisdom teeth.
