#8 Seaside - Broadway Middle School & Seaside High School
February 23, 2015 by Carrie Peterson
With the promise of sunny weather the Tooth Taxi team was excited to head to the Oregon Coast last week to visit Broadway Middle School in Seaside. Upon arrival they were informed of students with dental needs at the High School and quickly altered their plan to accommodate both locations.

At the Middle School Dr. Carneiro and assistant, Catherine Johnson, were able to screen and treat all of the students while assistant Becca Jordan provided prophy's and home care instruction.

The team then moved the Tooth Taxi to the High School and was able to complete treatment on all of the patients there as well.

We also had return volunteer, Miranda Cooper, with us on Monday. She is interested in applying to dental school and was able to help escort students and observe treatment. We always love having her aboard.

Volunteers:
Miranda Cooper, potential dental student

Other notes:
50% of students screened needed treatment
