#47 Community Transitional School
December 17, 2012 By Mary Daly
The Tooth Taxi paid a follow up visit to Community Transitional School in NE Portland where we continued treatment on students identified in September. As always at this school the kids are very excited to see us. Going into the lunchroom, hallway or classroom to pick up a kid, you hear from everyone (all at once): "Am I on the list? Is it my turn? When is it going to be my turn?" Or they want to show you their mouth (pointing to their tooth): "I have lost my tooth!" or "My tooth is wiggly!" All are hoping to get a turn to come out to the Tooth Taxi. We love that kind of reception!

Dan Reynolds, our pre-dental student and frequent volunteer helped to keep things rolling while we were short staffed.

From the kid gallery:
I saw a student that told me he brushed his teeth yesterday and they bled, and his dad said he had that thing that you get. The student couldn't remember what it was called. I said "Gingivitis?" Yeah, that's it – gingivitis!
