#17 Newberg
April 21, 2014 by Mary Daly

Newberg students at Edwards Elementary watched as the Tooth Taxi awning rolled out to block some of the crazy spring weather.  They were yelling "Awesome!"  "That's so cool!" Parked next to the cafeteria for the week all the students were able to see the Tooth Taxi. On our 4th visit to this school we still found lots of work to do to improve students' oral health.
