On another note:
I found (confirmed) my second board patient today. My friend Dr. Laura Fauchier is a total saint and has been looking for board patients for me in her own private practice in Marion, IA. She has spent her own time making arrangements as well as donating the patient (and procedure profits) to me as well as the use of her office for screenings and xrays.
So far, Laura has found me two patients who appear very viable. I am particularly enthused about the periodontal patient she found that I screened tonight. She meets the criteria almost perfectly, without being too complex or borderline. This is the hardest patient to find.
So, I am still looking for one more patient with a cavity between the front teeth, and some potential back up patients, just in case. I feel very relieved for tonight.
