Synopsis: During his long career as a dentist, Pat Foy, DDS, has treated patients from every walk of life. Some were involved in life-shattering accidents requiring oral surgery, while others merely stopped in a for a semi-annual check-up. A few had never been in a dental office before. But in every case, there’s a human drama behind the immediate issue, and Dr. Foy exposes this dimension of his daily work with brevity and insight. He draws out the humor wherever he can find it, but also turns his attention unflinchingly to the darker dramas that his patients are sometimes involved in. The collection also includes reminiscences of his family, his youth, and his years in dental school. The result is a pleasantly humanistic, poignant, surprising, insightful, funny, unexpected, and occasionally shocking look at a profession, and a slice of life, that holds depths of human feeling and interest far beyond the world of cavities and crowns.

About the Author: Pat Foy, DDS, was raised as a true midwesterner. As a child he wore many hats, including paper boy, guitar player, unicyclist, juggler, cowboy, farmhand, carbon-arch theater projectionist, Canadian fishing guide, barefoot water-skier, dance-hall concessioner, house painter and an expert broom pusher. Adulthood brought many additional roles such as husband, father, dentist, writer, public speaker, dental researcher, biker, sailor, fisherman, hunter, chief grill cook and bottle washer. Dr. Foy has been active throughout his career in many aspects of dentistry. He has served as president of the Minnesota Dental Association and served on the American Dental Association’s Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs. He has also served as Executive Committee member with the Dental Practice-based Research network which was funded by the Institute of National Dental and Cranial Research (a division of the National Institutes of Health). He has written and spoken widely in favor of the implementation of evidence-based dentistry in the private practice.
