Unlikely: There is not a high likelihood of contracting HIV from a kiss without frank blood being seen/tasted. However, if you engage in any intimate behaviors or are otherwise exposed to other people's body fluids, talk to your pcp about getting tested. Stay safe.

Good to get baseline: Hiv ab test if sexually active and not monogomous. The oral risk is very low.
