The Tooth Taxi’s visit this week was a tremendous success and many of our families benefited from this unique program. The Tooth Taxi saw 44 students and provided over $26,000 worth of free dental care to those students including tooth extractions, filling cavities, etc. In addition, they made presentations in many of our classrooms. Dental health care is a real need in our school community and we are deeply grateful to everyone who made the Tooth Taxi’s visit possible.
Check out the article in The Register Guard about the visit.
This week, November 18th through the 22nd, will be a busy one at VES with the Tooth Taxi mobile dental office here all week and the Book Fair/Holiday Bazaar on Friday and Saturday. We need volunteers to help with the Tooth Taxi program and the Book Fair/Bazaar. If you can help, even for just a few hours, we need you. Please call the office for more info and we will sign you up. Thanks!
