Can anyone recommend a dentist in the Asheville, NC area who will see patients WITHOUT mandatory x rays?
I’m very frustrated in my attempts to locate a dentist who will treat my family without making us get x rays. I’m so tired of all the arguments about why we must get them, and how little radiation we receive. My ob gyn would not refuse to see me if I declined a mammogram, my GP would not kick me out of his practice if I declined a colonoscopy. But dentists routinely refuse to clean and examine patients if they decline x rays. Even if I offer to sign a statement saying I was advised to have x rays but declined.
