Re: dental problems

I've been using medical insurance for eye problems, so I don't see why you couldn't use it for dental problems? It's worth asking your insurance company. It's related to a medical problem.

I just recently came across this on the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation web site: Under the Get Connected, Shop for Sjogren's link, there's information on dental plans. I don't use this myself, but it's something else to look into. Good luck!
