The board also voted to censure Banovac for what it called inadequate treatment of another patient. The board censured her again in August 1993 for what it called inadequate treatment of a man for whom Banovac made dentures.

The Arizona board records show her license was issued in April 1989 after her 1988 graduation with a doctorate in dental surgery from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry.

Banovac told The Oklahoman she practiced dental surgery for a short time in Arizona and provided general medical services in volunteer trips to Mexico and along the Amazon River. She said she closed her dental practice because she married Robert C. Banovac, who wanted her to spend more time with him.

Robert Banovac told The Oklahoman on Wednesday in an e-mail he hasn't spoken with his ex-wife since they divorced five years ago.

She lives mostly

in Phoenix

When Tammy Banovac tried to pass through security the first time this week, she was denied boarding by the Transportation Security Administration after security workers detected traces of nitrates on her possessions.

Banovac returned to the airport Wednesday, again clad in her bra and panties and using a wheelchair, and successfully passed through security. She put on more clothes before boarding her flight to Phoenix, where she said she spends most of her time. She said she also has a ranch in Kingfisher County and a residence in Hawaii.

Banovac said she has worn underwear at airport security “three or four times” since an unpleasant experience two weeks ago when she felt violated by a pat-down TSA search using the more invasive methods it recently adopted. Banovac said she thinks it makes it easier on her and TSA because the parts of her body TSA would want to hand-search are visible when she wears only underwear.

She said she was not trying to draw attention to herself or make a scene.
