#19 Gearhart
May 5, 2015 by Mary Daly

The Tooth Taxi returned to Gearhart Elementary on the coast under the helm of Dr. Dave Carneiro.  Most of the students we treated had been seen during our first visit there in February. Wrapping up treatment on many of those students and taking care of emergent needs on eight new screenings made for a productive week. 

Marilyn Partridge, retired teacher and sister to Tooth Taxi assistant Catherine Johnson, helped out by ushering students.  District nurse, Gina Kytr, was on hand to make sure we had a smooth week and that kids needing treatment had the paperwork ready so they would not miss out on the opportunity to have their teeth taken care of.

Other notes:
100% of students screened needed treatment
0% needed no treatment.
