#40 Woodburn
December 16, 2013 by Mary Daly

It has become tradition for the Tooth Taxi to spend the last week before holiday break at Woodburn High SchoolDr. Tuan Truong volunteered with us for three days in memory of his classmate Dr. Josh Moffitt.  When not on the Tooth Taxi, Dr. Truong attends to the dental needs of PSU students at their on-campus clinic.  It was the perfect week to have Dr. Truong on board as he speaks Spanish and that is the native language of many of the high school students. 

Debi Hawkins, former volunteer, joined the team as our part-time assistant. Debi brings years of dental experience to the group and will help to fulfill additional staff needs as our schedule fluctuates. Welcome Debi!
