Re: Dentists need to know?
Dentists ask a lot of questions that seem odd, but do have legitimate implications for your oral health.
Of course, it is entirely up to you whether or not you decide to share this info. You are under no obligation to tell your doctor anything you don't want to, but to receive the best possible care, you should probably be completely honest. And don't worry, dentists have to follow confidentiality rules too.
