The Tooth Taxi is a 38’ state-of-the-art dental office on wheels with two dental chairs and a full-time dentist and staff. It visits schools throughout Oregon to provide free dental care and oral health education to uninsured and underserved children.

That's great! With that, dental services would be within reach even at the remotest areas. That will also relieve the stress usually associated with visiting the dentist. It seems more Oregonians will be freed from oral and dental difficulties with this! Kudos to everyone involved in this project!

Yeah, it's a pretty novel idea thanks to its mobility. This would be helpful in reaching areas that are too far away from the dentist's office, and perhaps it can be called upon during serious dental emergencies.
