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!
Lots of normal foods are naturally gluten free - meats/poultry, vegetables, fruits, lunchmeats, rice, beans, corn tortillas, etc. The gluten free "specialty" items are not a requirement. Many people who are on the gluten free diet eat predominantly naturally occuring gluten free items.
You may want to contact the owner of Better Batter Flours - she does a great presentation on budgeting and saving money on a gluten-free diet and speaks about it to Celiac Support Groups. I'm sure she'd be happy to share some of her thoughts with you. http://betterbatter.org/contact.html
Good luck and hang in there. Let us know what we can do to help.
This is the Gluten-Free Celiac Disease Forum. If one has Celiac disease, one doesn't consume gluten. Wheat, Barley, & Rye contain gluten. Beer is made from malted barley. Celiacs don't drink beer. Perhaps you people don't have Celiac Disease.

Actually, there are very many people with Celiac Disease that do not follow the diet http://www.celiac.co...Diet/Page1.html. People with Celiac Diease do drink beer. It doesn't mean they should or shouldn't - but they do.
Josh has confirmed Celiac Disease and I'm willing to bet he doesn't appreciate being told that he doesn't have a condition that he does have.

I don't have a whole ten to add as mine mainly consists of SLEEPING and....
51. Have your darling significant other give you a massage....it is the only thing that helps my muscle/bone pain temporarily. Even for those w/o the pain, hey, you are still getting a massage from your sweetie!
52. After you've called your mom, call your grandma! "Older" people can relate to the chronic pain and are so sweet and caring. Plus, you know you'll get an extra mention in her prayers that day, so that always helps!
