#6 Foster Elementary
February 3, 2014 by Mary Daly

The Tooth Taxi left Foster in a December snowstorm and returned last week to continue treatment before the January storm hit.  School staff gave us a warm return welcome.  Dr. Jan Peterson wrapped up treatment on students seen in December.

Assistant Catherine Johnson visited the Kidco Head Start that serves children from the community and children of school age teen parents.  Catherine reviewed the "First Tooth" information and left oral hygiene kits and nutritional fact sheets for all the families.

The mother of a patient stopped by the Tooth Taxi to say "Thank you for what you do."
