#10 Gervais
March 3, 2014 by Mary Daly

Dental Assistant Appreciation Week found the Tooth Taxi in Gervais with staff taking care of elementary and alternative high school students while enjoying their fruit basket from the DFO ("Celebrating and thanking you for all you do to improve the oral health for Oregon's children!").  The Tooth Taxi has been to the Gervais school district on several occasions where staff is helpful and welcoming. Between Drs. Prates and McLeod and Catherine's preventive work, 25 students had their treatment completed. Once again the Tooth Taxi withstood strong spring storms – wet and windy!
