Hello

I had tongue cancer and it spread to my lymphnodes when I was 21 years old.  I'm 36 now

and having constant dental issues because of the radiation.  I just moved to Corvallis, OR and I'm looking for a Dentist who has experience with this issue.  I'm willing to travel if there is an experienced dentist available.  Any recommendations in Oregon.  Thank you

    Dentist

    CivilMatt is in Oregon.  You might message him.  You could check with OSHU, they might be able to give you some names.  Dental work is such a pain but needs to be taken care of.

    You might contact...........

    You might contact the hospital or doctors where you had it done and they might know or check into that for you. If not call your insurance and ask they might be able to help as well. I know my insurance [Aetna] does that and surched all oner to find me a supplier for my larngectomee supplys. They even got into an argument as the supplier said they didn't take the insurance and Aetna had to get a supervisor to explain it is covered, but they really helped me. Best of luck finding a good denist and wishing you good health as well.

    it's this one right here

    abbimom,

    I have what I think is a very good dentist and I am 11 miles away in Albany.  Matter-of –fact I was NEC (no evidence of cavities) at yesterday’s 3+ year check-up.

    I don’t know what experience he has with our types of issues, but I can sure provide some contact information if your Corvallis search turns up dry.

    Keep grinning,

    Matt
