No dental care without yearly x-rays
WTF? I went to have my teeth cleaned as usual and was informed they wouldn't clean my teeth without x-rays. A new dentist has taken over the office after the old one retired. They said it was a legal requirement to have x-rays every year. BullSHIT! I am old and don't want anymore radiation. There's nothing wrong with my teeth - no implants, no pain, no unfilled cavities. I was being blackmailed, it was either their way or the highway. I walked out, and filed a complaint with the state Dental Licensing Board.

Since when are people not allowed to dental care without having to have x-rays?! I was outraged.

That would be bullshit. I hope you can find more reasonable care. If not, you might try oil pulling.

Dentists run so many scams to soak you and the insurance companies. The x-rays are digital and cost pennies but you get to pay for their expensive machines ... that is why you get xrays every time

Did you find a dentist that doesn't require yearly x-rays? I've done some reading and found that in older people, the ADA only recommends x-rays every 24-36 months, not yearly, unless there's an active problem.

Re: No dental care without yearly x-rays
It IS total BS, OP.

The whole medical field is that way and I stay away as much as possible.

However, that being said, sometimes employees get "law" and "policy" confused.

The new dentist may have a POLICY that states "No care without X-Rays" and that policy may have been a result of some sort of litigation where they did a procedure/cleaning and something bad happened that could've been avoided with an x-ray. One. Time.

And because of that ONE time, now EVERY patient must adhere to the "policy" of having it once a year.

The office staff in medical offices are just as bad as BMV/DMV employees and can't oftentimes comprehend simple logic.

They heard "policy" and repeated it as "law"

We see it everyday. Dentists want to use fluoride and mercury laden amalgams and MD's want to fill you with vaccinations containing a witche's brew of poisons. It pisses doctors off if they can't 'run you through the mill' so they can bill your insurance.

Nope, I walked out. Took off the blue apron thing and left. The trouble is, I had already paid for the cleaning when I enrolled in their yearly office insurance. I was due for my second cleaning of the year, and didn't get it.

Re: No dental care without yearly x-rays
The main thing is, I want to find a dentist who isn't a rigid nazi about x-rays. The older dentist I had was fine. The younger ones are robots of the system, I guess. They don't know how to think for themselves. If you don't fit into their pattern, they throw you out because they don't know what to do with something that doesn't fit the pattern. This is very disturbing to me. The new dentist is half my age and an idiot when it comes to independent thought. I will try to look up "holistic dentist" or something. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: No dental care without yearly x-rays
How do these dentists think it helps promote dental health if they won't clean your teeth or examine them without x-rays first? The ADA also states that you shouldn't even have x-rays without the dentist's exam first. What a racket.

My dentist doesn't make a fuss about it. I told him as long as nothing hurts, why bother? He agreed. Got my cleaning done with no hassle.

I think you should find another dentist.

Re: No dental care without yearly x-rays
I found a "bio dentist." Will be calling their office. I am incensed at this treatment, tho. It will be interesting to see what the state Dental Board says about it. A case against the dentist has been opened after I complained.
