#26 Woodburn
JUN, 26 2012 By MARY DALY
Woodburn schools are familiar with the Tooth Taxi as they are frequent recipients of our services during the school year and for their summer program. Summer programs always have a lot of fun activities and visitors – turtles from the Fish & Wildlife Department! With lots of help from high school students, office secretaries and summer program lead teacher, Ronda Johnson, we had a productive week plus a mid-week break to celebrate 4th of July. As one young boy asked: "Are you going to see the bombs?" (fireworks) Dr. Josh Moffitt helped out in Woodburn. Dr. Moffitt will be joining the Tooth Taxi team full-time at the end of July.

A visit from Woodburn Independent (no online feature)

From the kid gallery:
"Smells dentistry in here."

"Do I have to brush my lips?"

"When you die do your teeth die?"

Realities from the road:
One young girl who has very long hair said she is cutting it in August for kids with cancer.
