#37 Dorena
November 12, 2013 by Mary Daly

Fall colors and covered bridges dotted the small picturesque town of Dorena in rural South Lane County.  We were joined by Dr. Rosellen Kimbrough from Roseburg who did great with all the kids, providing extensive treatment on a few patients to complete their treatment. Everyone at Dorena School was very helpful and welcoming to the Tooth Taxi team.  We tried out our new book Sugarbug Doug by Dr. Ben Magleby during classroom presentations; the kids and teachers loved the story.

South Lane School District has been a big supporter of the Tooth Taxi program; HR Director Tim Rochholz visited the Tooth Taxi with Frank Simpson from the Oregon Community Foundation.

Realities from the road:
Rural areas make technology a challenge – in this rural area spotty cell service at best and no internet. 

Other notes:
40% of students screened needed treatment
60% needed no treatment.
