I know that KP wants those wisdom teeth out before they report in July, so here is my problem... our health insurance is with a huge HMO. I took my son to the dentist for his regular check up and cleaning, I told him we needed his wisdom teeth out, dentist said that there was no reason for his wisdom teeth to come out now, there is nothing wrong with them. I explained situation in more detail, and asked for a referal to the oral surgeon, he said he would give the referal, but that we would probably would have a hard time with getting this done since they are not currently giving him any trouble. Well it's been almost two weeks, and he never did make the referal for us, so I am working on that again. Has anyone had any experience with this? If I can't get anywhere with the HMO should I just take him somewhere else and pay for it out of pocket?
