Special Thanks to Our Community Partners Thank you to Dr. David J. Dowsett and the staff with Complete Health Dentistry of Portland for their recent and very generous donation in memory of Betsy Burton. Over the summer, Dr. Dowsett hosted the Tooth Taxi at his office, and throughout the day patients were asked to select which charity they would like their dental fees to be donated to: The Dental Foundation of Oregon, The Jerome Kersey Foundation, or The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Not only did the DFO share in the financial support to the foundation, but the Tooth Taxi team and Dr. Dowsett’s staff were able to help increase awareness of the need for oral health care throughout Oregon.
