Close call

I almost lost one of my denture patients today. Turns out that after his 6 weeks of healing from a surgery I did, he had a bony spicule in another area that would interfere with his denture. It will take another 6 weeks of healing before we can get started again and the surgery clinic was booked up until the middle of April. I have to start all denture patients by May 1 or I will not be finished. Poor guy would have to go without teeth until next semester when they could begin the 2-3 month process. Luckily, one of the faculty members offered to get him in earlier. Phew!

I also got going on two gold crowns. I have four patients currently going. I am still behind where I need to be and I have no patients on Monday which isn't helping...but hopefully I can get ahead. I have had a lot of time to do lab work at least.

Tomorrow I get to do my first root canal, if all goes as planned. Wish me luck!

HAHA! I thought when you said you meant almost lost him as in he almost died. You seemed so nonchalant about it all...

Good luck getting all your requirements completed! Do you want me to advertise for you? You did such a lovely job cleaning my teeth many moons ago. I'm afraid that's the best help I can offer you at the moment! :)
