#28 Friends of the Children
October 25, 2014 by Mary Daly

Friends of the Children headquartered in NE Portland hosted the Tooth Taxi for our fourth annual visit. 
If you are not familiar with this organization they are, the 'revolutionary mentoring program that is transforming the lives of our most vulnerable children.' We met some amazing kids and their mentors (friends). Kids were busy learning about oral health at our screening and across the hall at OMSI camp they learned about lizards. Dr. Jo-Anna Tan and the Tooth Taxi team helped provide brighter smiles for those children who head back to school next week.'

Other notes:
55% of students screened needed treatment
45% needed no treatment.
