Q. I was wondering how I would go about finding a dentist in my area who practices acupuncture?
I have a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and as such local anaesthesia is ineffetive on me which is a real problem for any dental procedures. I was therefore was hoping to try and find a dentist who used acupuncture-based analgesia.
A. The best option is to contact the British Dental Acupuncture Society whose details can be found at http://www.bdas.org.uk/ There are now a significant number of dentists who use acupuncture as an adjunct in their dental treatment, and you should be able to locate someone from their list local to you who can provide the appropriate guidance and advice.
