#12 Portland's DePaul Alternative High School and #13 Newberg's Edwards Elementary
March 23-April 3, 2015 by Carrie Peterson

The Tooth Taxi spent spring break at DePaul Alternative High School where we welcomed new volunteer, Dr. Annalisa Smith, on Monday to help with screenings and begin treatment on students. The rest of the week we had frequent fill in, Dr. JoAnna Tan, complete treatment and provide cleanings on the remaining students.

The following week we were in Newberg at Edwards Elementary. We have made yearly trips to this school over the last five years. Due to the services and patient education we were able to provide, and the recent opening of a local dental clinic, we are beginning to see a decline in the need here and that is good news for this community.

A huge thank you to Dr. Mike Goger and Dr. Jennifer McLeod who continue to volunteer their time and services to children in need.

We also welcomed new faces. Charis Blakely-Naffin, RDH provided cleanings and oral hygiene education while Dr. Leslie Mitchell and her assistant, Cheri Stickler, took time out of their schedule to provide free dental services to the children in their community.
