The Tooth Taxi team is starting off the new school year with a new staff dentist, Dr. K. Dave Carneiro. Dr. Carneiro is no stranger to our program as he filled in occasionally last year as our temp dentist. We are very excited to have him on board, and Oregon school kids are in for a treat to have him as their dentist. Welcome Dr. Carneiro!

The Tooth Taxi returned to Canyonville School to provide follow-up treatment for students seen last May. Students and staff were very welcoming; we had beautiful weather, and completed treatment on 22 students. The new school year is off to a great start!

Realities from the road:
'I don't brush because my dad uses my toothbrush to clean his hat, he really needs it' Told to assistant Catherine Johnson as the student receives a cleaning and oral hygiene instructions.
