I am adamantly opposed to having my head x-rayed every time I have my teeth cleaned. Is there a way I can force the dentist to clean my teeth without the obnoxious x-rays? This problem does not come under the category of everyday problems because I am confronted with dentists that are in cahoots with each other. If they allow one potential patient to get away with refusing x-rays, it will cost them thousands of Dollars in lost profits. The answer I need would be how I can go over their heads to some state or federal agency that has the power to order the dentist to clean my teeth without the requirement of x-rays. I have had way to many x-rays in my life and because of the fact that radiation exposure is cumulative, I don't want any more.
