#18 Madras
April 28, 2014 by Mary Daly

Tooth Taxi, Dr. Teri Barichello, and the Blazers!!!  Blazer mania on the Tooth Taxi in Madras, OR. It was Rip City for the week as the team rooted for the Blazers and Dr. Barichello racked up points completing treatment on 26 students. 

Jamie Smith, school RN and OEA Choice Trust board member, was a great host and very helpful with running kids to and from class. Everyone at the school was a pleasure to be around.  Central Oregon Community College donated oral hygiene kits to Jamie and he handed them out to students in the classrooms where Catherine delivered oral hygiene presentations.

Wednesday, Catherine went to Madras High School and gave Teen Mom presentations to two students and their young children – a 9 month old and a 2-year old.
The kids are always inspiring and we saw how strong kids can be; we treated a student with MS whose determination gave him the strength to make it up the Tooth Taxi steps with a little help.

From the kid gallery:
Are you real dentists?
I need a chill pill.
When did you start dating?
Why do you have a roof TV? Is this the only channel?

Other notes:
57% of students screened needed treatment
48% needed no treatment.
