“When I became seriously ill with rheumatoid arthritis, I needed ten major joints replaced, but I couldn’t get that done until my poor teeth were fixed, making me healthy enough to withstand the surgeries. So I was rushed into Mountain Family’s Rifle Health Center, where the dental team’s wonderful work saved me. Now I have a new partial denture, and my new knees, shoulders, elbows and wrist have given me my life back. I can walk, and I’m not only surviving but actually thriving.
It’s all because of these generous, talented people who could work anywhere, but who choose to work here at Mountain Family.
Without Mountain Family, dental care for lower income people simply wouldn’t exist around here. I am so, so grateful for this incredibly important community asset and for the people who help support it.”
