#20 Milton-Freewater
May 12, 2014 by Mary Daly

The dentists of Eastern Oregon pulled together to keep the Tooth Taxi rolling for our visit to Grove and Freewater Elementary Schools in Milton-Freewater.  This was the fifth visit to Milton-Freewater where we continue to see the need for oral health services.  Several parents stopped by the Tooth Taxi asking about services for their middle and high school age children.

After a gorgeous drive through the Columbia River Gorge the Tooth Taxi's first stop was Grove Elementary for screening and then on to Freewater Elementary to park for the week. With a great staff, lots of kiddos received care, and 20 students had their treatment completed.
