How to find patients for regular school clinic days?

I just started my 2nd semester of dental hygiene school and we are about to start working with real patients. However, I don’t have any patients to work on; the recall list provided by my institution resulted in 3 people not answering, 1 person telling me that my clinic times would not work with their schedule, and 1 person telling me that they now live on the other side of the country. Help!? I don’t have any good friends outside of the program that I can ask for something like this and my immediate family is small, I only have about 3 people I can count on and we are required to have 5 for this semester alone.

Any tips are greatly appreciated because the stress of finding patients is not something that I had expected to be so difficult.

Try asking students around your school, especially the ones that live on campus. That’s where 70% of my patients came from.
