#4 Community Transitional School
January 29, 2013 by Mary Daly

Students at Portland's Community Transitional School (CTS) are almost always eager to come aboard the Tooth Taxi. Tooth Taxi staff are bombarded with requests "Is it my turn?" "When am I going?" "Are you here for me?" as they escort students to and from the classrooms.

The staff dentist finished treatment on numerous CTS students who have been to the Tooth Taxi multiple times in the last year.  This preK-8th school for homeless students has been a great fill-in resource for us when we have last minute schedule changes.

Volunteers:
Frequent volunteer, pediatric dentist Dr. Andrea Beltzner, Sonja Stark, Portland 8th grader who is using the Tooth Taxi for her independent learning project.

Visitors:
Dr. Teri Barichello, ODS Vice President Scout, our Mascot.

From the kid gallery:
A hug accompanied the exclamation
"I love you guys so much!" after a patient had two bothersome baby teeth removed.

Other notes:
No new screenings.
