Yes, definitely tell them. In intake forms, they will usually ask about allergies, and you can just list it there. Then, when the dentist reviews it and brings it up, you can mention that you need to check all products before they are used on you, etc. Easy!

Good luck!

Hopefully this info will help you make decisions for their products.... http://www.sodelicio.../allergies.html

Looks okay to me. And, they advertise in gluten free publications (this month's Living Without magazine).

You don't need both genes to have Celiac. If you had neither gene, and negative tests, then Celiac could essentially be ruled out.

I think its a small percentage of Celiacs who have both genes.

One step that you can take is ask the ped. to test him for the genes associated with Celiac - HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8. Over 95-98% of those with Celiac has one/both of the genes, so if he tests negative, then you know his risk for Celiac is dramatically lower than someone with the gene. Of course, having the gene does not mean he has Celiac, as 30-40% of the population has the gene. But, would be a good bit of information to you to have.
