AUG, 20 2012 By MARY DALY
It's always great to partner with the Salem Boys & Girls Club dental clinic to provide services after their big summer health fair. The Tooth Taxi parks next to their raised garden beds, the parking lot surface is covered with fabulous chalk art that relates to oral health, and lunches are provided daily. Thank you to Jodi Loper, Director of the dental clinic for making our visit so enjoyable!
