TOOTH TAXI COMING SOON to your elementary school!
Forms will be sent home with your elementary student in the next couple of days. Please return them by November 30, 2016. Every student who returns the paperwork packet will receive an oral screening and will get to take home a FREE ORAL HYGIENE KIT!
What is the Tooth Taxi?
A dental van that visits school districts throughout Oregon providing free dental care to students grades K-12. The Tooth Taxi is the project of the Dental Foundation of Oregon (DFO), in partnership with OEA Choice Trust and ODS, whose mission is “Improving oral health for Oregon’s children.”
Which students can receive the treatment?
The Tooth Taxi gives treatment priority to children that have no dental insurance, children that have never been to the dentist, or children with an emergent need.
What type of treatment does Tooth Taxi provide?
Basic dental care, including exams, cleanings, sealants, restorations and extractions.
What is the cost for treatment?
The costs associated with the Tooth Taxi will be covered by the generous contributions from donors. There is no cost to the parents or school district. If parents have private insurance, the Tooth Taxi will bill for services rendered with no cost to the family; however, it will reflect in future benefits.
What if I have questions?
Please visit www.SmileOnOregon.org under “Tooth Taxi Adventures”.
