The Smiles Across Montana (SAM) team visited us in May and provided preventative dental care to kids from across the county area. SAM services include exams, cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and x-rays necessary and prescribed by a dentist. These services are meant to support a relationship you may already have with a dentist. However, if you don’t have one, that’s okay—it’s not required to participate. SAM just wants to provide accessible preventative dental care.
