#38 Haines/Baker City
October 1, 2012 By Mary Daly
Eastern Oregon's beautiful blue skies and sunny days fooled us when evening temperatures dipped into the teens; a true change of seasons when we have to turn on the heat in the Tooth Taxi. We parked at S. Baker Intermediate School and also served students from the middle school.

There was a lot of enthusiasm around the Tooth Taxi:

As our assistant Catherine walked a student to his appointment he was literally jumping up and down with excitement and to everyone they passed in the hallway he announced "I am going out to the Tooth Taxi!!"

A parent brought her daughter for an appointment. We asked how her son was doing from his appointment yesterday and she said excellent. He was very excited about his visit, he really liked Dr. Moffitt. He went on the DFO website last night and showed his family all about the Tooth Taxi.

From S. Baker Intermediate Principal Betty Palmer and coordinator Andy Ballard

Read about the Tooth Taxi's visit in the Baker City Herald.

From the kid gallery:
During screening: "I'm addicted to sugar."

Realities from the road:
Students handing in packets on our last day trying to be seen. A testament to the Tooth Taxi reputation and word of mouth travels!

Other notes:
61% of students screened needed treatment
39% needed no treatment.
