Prineville & Salem Paddy Pint Runs
Dr. Tony and Dannielle Ramos at the Prineville Paddy Pint Run
Cheers to Dr. Tony Ramos, and Dr. Kristen Smith two dentists who are truly making a difference!
Jacki Gallo, DFO Executive Director went to Prineville for the fourth annual Prineville Paddy Pint Run. The run was a huge success, and approximately 300 runners registered and took part in the festivities. It was a great event to be part of, and we are so lucky to be the beneficiaries of Dr. Ramos' amazing community work. He did such an incredible job getting his community involved. It was wonderful to see the Prineville community gather and engage for the benefit improving oral health for Oregon's children.
The Tooth Taxi and several of us from the DFO were able to take part in the first annual Salem Paddy Pint Run on March 18th, with over 375 registered runners. We were able to show off the Tooth Taxi on site, and give tours throughout the race. Dr. Kristen Smith and her office put this run together, and brought the Salem community together to help children in need of dental care. The proceeds of the event benefit the Tooth Taxi. Dr. Smith, thank you for being an inspiration to the community.
Both Paddy Pint Runs were terrific, and we are so thankful to Dr. Ramos and Dr. Smith who have stepped up to run these events for the benefit of the DFO. If you would like to host any type of event for the benefit of the DFO and Tooth Taxi, please reach out to us and let us know how we can help you.
