#31 Portland, Community Transitional School
September 22, 2014 by Mary Daly

Kids at Portland's Community Transitional School love the Tooth Taxi, and it is an added bonus when our team mascots join us. Not only do we hear "Is it my turn?"but also "Is your puppy here today?'' With visitors, volunteers, puppies, and the release of our new Tooth Taxi oral health bookmark, there were lots of smiles among students."

The last day brought in four new packets for screening, four students in need of oral health services. We'll return to this school later in the Fall for continued treatment.
