“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.”

“My daughter has multiple health needs. She has a physical disability, major depressive disorder and other conditions. When I brought her home from college due to a mental health crisis she experienced, we went to Mountain Family for a medical exam because her insurance is Medicaid due to her disability.

What an incredible experience we had! During the medical exam, they brought in a behavioral health provider to meet my daughter to address her mental health issues. They scheduled a much-needed dental appointment. The whole care team, including the front desk staff just wrapped their arms around us. We are so glad we found our new healthcare home 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.”
