Question by Maggie BR: Dental Problem-I am extremely allergic to nickel and keep an EPI pen with me in case I touch the wrong thing?
I am extremely allergic to nickel and have to keep an EPI pen with me just in case I touch the wrong thing. (Diagnosed 02/01/2008) Last week my dentist called for my regular 6 month cleaning and I advised them of the allergy. I was told at that time they could not accommodate me as a patient. I have called multiple dentists and a dental school and so far no one will accept me for a simple cleaning. They all say the instruments are all metal. What should I do?
Update- I talked to the National Dental Association and they said they can’t help. The only thing they can do is send me a list of dentist that are regestered with them in my area and that is only 2.

I would call the office that diagnosed you with the nickel allergy and see if they can recommend you to a dentist. There has got to be someone out there who can see you. Good luck!
