In brief: Yes
Condoms and other forms of barrier protection (i.
e. A dental dam) prevent transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases from one person to another. They must be use properly. If they break, then they have little benefit. Never use "two condoms" on top of one another. Free condoms work well, and are often identical to condoms you buy.

Can't say I've ever heard of a dental rubber dam used as a condom. 30 plus yrs of dentistry and still learning!

We are referring to the "safe sex" definition here, rather than the "dentistry" one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dental_dam

In brief: Yes
Just as well as the ones you pay for. But remember, not everything is 100%.
