#13 De Paul Alternative High School
March 24, 2014 by Mary Daly

It was spring break for most schools but with NE Portland's De Paul Alternative High School in session the Tooth Taxi kept rolling.  We said good-by to our part-time Dentist, Dr. Kevin Prates who has been filling in for us providing care and doing a great job connecting with the students.  Best of luck to Dr. Prates as he starts a full-time position in Hood River, we know we'll see him again as a volunteer.

Our Mascot, Scout.

From the kid gallery:
The Doctor will be right in with you.  Patient: "You mean they have dr.'s here?"

Other notes:
74% of students screened needed treatment
26% needed no treatment.
