#30 Myrtle Creek and Riddle
September 15, 2014 by Mary Daly

The Tooth Taxi made the rounds in Douglas County last week visiting Tri City Elementary in Myrtle Creek and Riddle Elementary in Riddle working on students from our spring visits. Thanks to both schools for hosting us at the beginning of a new school year!

One of the Riddle students that is now in high school made it to the Tooth Taxi for an appointment to finish up his care. He received a significant amount of donated dental services from the spring and fall visits; he now has a great oral health foundation to start his high school years.

Myrtle Creek was hot and smoky due to nearby forest fires; hazy sky and ash in the air. "The students were excited to see us; some had even been to the dentist during the summer."

Realities from the road:
TT Staff:"Did you go to the dentist over the summer?"
Student:"No my daddy has money coming out of his check."
