I've been calling the New Mexico State Dental Board for 3 days. No answer. I left a voicemail and sent an email. Neither have been returned. I called the NM Governor's office. They won't do anything. I just received my Texas dental license. It took 4 months. While waiting I called the TX Governor's office. They refused to do anything. They said they have no authority over the Texas STATE Board of Dental Examiners. What?! FYI, I have a spotless record and no criminal history. I have taken and passed a clinical exam too. Dentists like me have lost collectively millions of dollars to application fees, background checks, and lost wages. Personally, I'm out over $100,000 do these incompetent turf protecting dental boards. I've resolved to maintain 5 dental licenses so that I never go unemployed again. What can be done? Calling/Writing the governor doesn't work. Calling/writing US Senators and Congressmen doesn't work. Calling/writing state legislators doesn't work. There must be a better way. What can be done? It's absurd that I can't even get someone on the phone at some of these dental boards.
