To improve oral health for Oregon's children.
Bottom Line for Portland
The Tooth Taxi is a pediatric, mobile clinic that provides dental services to more than 3,000 low-income/uninsured children each year (more than one-third of whom live in the Portland metro area). In addition, it provides oral hygiene and nutrition classes to 150-200 children weekly.
“Thank you so much for all you did for our children. Simply stated, you truly make a difference in the life of a child.” —Ericka Guynes, principal, Earl Boyles Elementary
