“The Tooth Taxi staff are incredible with the students. They are patient and explain every step along the way to the child receiving care. On more than one occasion, the Tooth Taxi has had to come to our school twice in a year because of the severity and amount of need. The kids also get really excited about the dental kits they receive. To some of our families, even a simple toothbrush is a hardship.” —Tobi B., RN, BSN, nurse
