A 40-year-old member asked:
is it possible for a dental office to submit an authorization request for a partial denture without an exam?

Not recommended...: While it is possible for this to happen, a prudent dentist would not want any part of this. Through an exam a dentist can determine if the teeth can support a partial denture and can assure there is no sign of disease or cancer that may affect the overall treatment plan, among other things...

No: Without an exam and xrays it would not be possible.
