#27 Portland, De Paul Alternative High School
August 18, 2014 by Mary Daly

The Tooth Taxi occupies the best parking spot in town when visiting De Paul Alternative High School in NE Portland; situated next to the Cully Community Garden, with flowers in full bloom and veggies ripe for picking.

Although many of the students at De Paul have tattoos and piercings (including tongue) they were a bit fearful to receive dental care. Maintaining our goal of ensuring students have a positive experience Dr. Carneiro and Dr. Costello completed treatment on 11 students.
