Hello everyone, from what I read most of us have our teeth cleaned 3 to 4 times a year. My insurance only pays for 2 cleanings per year, how do you get them to pay for all the cleanings we need?

get your oncologist to write a letter saying that, due to radiation it is a medical need to prevent decay and teeth going bad early. That's what I did and it worked. Denis
