To improve oral health for Oregon’s children through a Tooth Taxi mobile dental clinic, which delivers free dental care and oral health education to low-income and uninsured kids at schools throughout the state.
Bottom Line for Portland
The Tooth Taxi goes to Portland metro area schools in communities where many children have limited or no access to dental care. In 2015, it saw 308 children, supplied 329 appointments in Portland and provided $201,742 in free dental care.
“The Tooth Taxi provides essential services to children who would otherwise go without. At Woodlawn Pre-K-8 School, dozens of children enjoyed the benefit of excellent, caring and free dental care. Just imagine the beautiful smiles on the children’s faces!”—Cindi Swingen, assistant principal, Abernethy K-5 School
