The Tooth Taxi visited Sacramento Elementary in the Parkrose School District during their last week of school.  Dr. Jo-Anna Tan joined us for screening and treatment.  Students' emergent needs were taken care of and remaining students received resources for OHP and The Children's Program.  Since the Tooth Taxi inception we have visited all six schools in the Parkrose district, located in outer NE Portland.

From the kid gallery:
Kindergartner:   "It's Tooth Taxi time."
"It's super wiggly" (loose tooth)
4th grader: "This is a cool van; do you have food on here? I'm kind of hungry."

Other notes:
85% of students screened needed treatment
15% needed no treatment
