We continue to operate on a modified schedule in response to the challenges presented by COVID-19 and the Delta variant. Please be patient as we respond to inquiries for the services of the Tooth Taxi and our team of professionals.
ABOUT THE TOOTH TAXI
The Tooth Taxi is a mobile dental van that visits public schools throughout the State of Oregon treating children K-12. Our goal is to reach areas that have limited access to dental resources and students without insurance. During the summer months, and when these schools are closed, the Tooth Taxi serves primarily children at nonprofit organizations that meet our requirements, and as scheduling permits.
Dedicated project coordinator to arrange and oversee the Tooth Taxi visit. This should be someone familiar with the school system (staff personnel, retired personnel, parent volunteer, etc.) that has time to dedicate to Tooth Taxi visit preparations. The project coordinator needs to be assigned to the Tooth Taxi Program Manager who will schedule a pre-site visit meeting to review preparations for hosting the Tooth Taxi.
Some of our considerations include:
1) High percentage of free & reduced lunch recipients.
2) Schools with adequate and safe parking for Tooth Taxi.
3) One volunteer per day to escort students to Tooth Taxi and back to class during Tooth Taxi site visit.
