Hillsboro's Lincoln St. Elementary is a familiar site for the Tooth Taxi team as we visited last year for the summer program. We are used to working with Seferina DeLeon-Dale and her Home School Consultant team that reaches out to the migrant families in the Hillsboro district. With a short visit in January the Tooth Taxi will return to Lincoln St. the week of March 5th to continue treatment for students. You can find us parked on the playground right in the midst of the recess hotspot.

The Library book packs continue to be a hit in the classroom and for students waiting in the van. The Tooth book is a favorite with kids.

Megan Geser, new EFDA will be joining us periodically to help out utilizing her new expanded functions certification.

Dental Assistant, Mette Singer.

Dr. McLeod: "Have you been to the dentist before?" 2nd grader: "1200 times."

"My mom is going to be so happy about this. Usually my dad pulls my teeth and I cry, but I didn't even cry today."

"Oh no, here it comes again" – Kinder to the x-ray camera.
