#27 Hillsboro
JUL, 06 2012 By MARY DALY
Hillsboro school district had two elementary schools participating in the summer migrant education program. The Tooth Taxi parked at Witch Hazel Elementary and kids were bused over from Patterson Elementary so all students had a chance for screenings and appointments. Read about the summer program services and mention of the Tooth Taxi.

Office staff and volunteers that helped to find students and keep our schedule full came out to see the van and pick up their free toothbrush. The staff was grateful for the services provided for these kids. Bus drivers visited and thought it was a great set up, a little different from what they drive.

From the kid gallery:
Do you brush your teeth? 6 yr old: "I don't know"

"My teeth bleed when they're mad."

"I promised the dentist I'd brush my teeth."

"It smells like candy."

Other notes:
40% of students screened needed treatment
60% needed no treatment.
