Elementary school students in Oregon will have a unique opportunity next week.
The students at Seaside Heights Elementary School will receive a visit from the “tooth taxi” from March 29 through April 1. The children will have dental screenings and receive treatment for any dental issues they have.
The “tooth taxi” is a mobile dental unit based in Oregon that provides dental services for children throughout the state. It includes two operatory units and a waiting room.
The mobile dental unit also has a full-time dentist and staff and may be at certain schools for as many as four days.
