    NYT: Although X-rays expose people to radiation, the risk of dental X-rays is low and dropping, as manufacturing companies work to reduce dosage.

    I don't know how dangerous they are but every time I have any work done, my dentist does this and just assumes that its ok, I wasn't happy the last time this happened as I thought it was unnecessary and asked if it was putting me at risk of which his reply was no, I then replied then why are you on the other side of the room behind a screen then, I haven't been back since and told him I would be looking for another dentist of which he wasn't happy about. I am the one at risk and also paying for it, he just assumed that I would. Anyhow, I refuse any now because it is not needed for most treatment.
