#33 Hermiston, Sunset Elementary
October 6, 2014 by Mary Daly

Hermiston=lots of sun and lots of students!' Several moms from the community volunteered at Sunset Elementary to help escort students, some with strollers and babies in tow! Thanks Moms! While Dr. Carneiro and assistant Becca provided restorative care, assistant Catherine Johnson rocked the front chair providing cleanings, sealants and fitting in classroom presentations.

Dr. Greg Jones and family

From the kid gallery:
"That was the best cleaning I ever had (after Catherine cleaned students' teeth & was taking him back to class)."

"The dentist again? I like going to the dentist."

"My daughter skyped everybody last night to show them her teeth that got fixed."

"Is this like the on the go dentist?'' 'Does it have to be parked to work?"

Other notes:
32% of students screened needed treatment
68% needed no treatment.
