Va "dentalgate" Fiasco- At Svr


Berta

Question

This is an outrageous way to treat veterans-

http://www.vawatchdog.org/10/nf10/nfjun10/nf063010-4.htm

2 vets here have gotten letters already-

We will the discuss the VA Watchdog story above that has been apparently on some news channels too already-

you would think after the colostomy fiasco and contamined colostomy equipment some time back that VA ,might have learned a lesson-but they didnt-

If my husband, a VA dental pt when he was alive, came home and told me he had AIDS I would have thought he had been running around with someone, and not gotten it from the dental clinic.

As I just mentioned to Jerrel Cook his dental records ironically became evidence for my AO diabetes claim.He needed minimal dental work but the dentist had noted a condition he had in his mouth that was actually a manifestation of his undiagnosed and untreated diabetes.

One cannot overlook their dental records when they read their med recs, as anything unusual the dental records reveal might well mean they have something else that the VA has not properly diagnosed yet.

Oral candidiasis (what the unusual stuff inside his mouth was), noted to be "white plague" by the VA dentist was proof that his undiagnosed diabetes had caused glucose levels so high that it cased spillage into his saliva.I found this medical fact in the 1997 VA Diabetes training letter.Neither the VA dentist -they are trained to look for gum or inner mouth disease- caught this and no VA doctor ever gave the dental records any thought.

Should be a good show- I will try to participate as any adversely affected veteran who had been seen at this clinic should ask the VA if they can spell Lawsuit Settlement!

This is a NATIONAL TRAGEDY-and an utter disgrace!!!!!!!

Gary got a letter already- please read his post on this too.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
