It is not like this.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Aamir,

Welcome to HCM.

There is no such evidence that you can get HIV in case of dentist without contact of any infectious fluid or blood so don't get panic about HIV.

I have also not seen any such reported case in my practice so be relaxed and forget about all things. For any further query get back to me any time.

Thank You
