Failed CRDTS

I have failed my CRDTS exam and now am looking for a patient to travel with me to San Diego for the exam in July. I am running out of time and can’t find anyone. I am so depressed and am thinking of giving up!!! Anyone has advice how to find a patient? I already graduated and live in the bay area while the exam is in San Diego.

Ask friends, ask family, post an ad on Craigslist, make a trip to San Diego and go to homeless shelters to screen, or even contact hygienists in the area and see if they come across a new patient that may qualify – they contact you. You can even contact your hygiene school and see if someone who might qualify comes into clinic, if you can go screen them. Don’t give up! You’ve come too far to quit!

If you haven’t already found a patient, I would recommend contacting the local schools. I found out after I had taken the boards that at my daughter’s elementary school, the teachers would have loved to volunteer. They liked the idea of helping a student and they did not have dental insurance so they were in need of hygiene treatment. Best of luck!

Thank you Kara and Debi for your help. I did my best to ask around but ended empty handed so I withdrew and now am waiting to take it in Sacramento in December
