A smile is a terrible thing to waste, especially when such conditions as tooth decay can be avoided.
Through regular dental care, adults and children have the power to ensure their teeth are free of plaque, which can lead to cavities. This is through brushing teeth twice a day, as well as regular checkups at the dentist's office.
However, some families are unable to afford such appointments, which is where organizations like the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation comes into play.
The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Washington Companies and recently focused its attention on Montana youth through a free day of dental checkups by providing grants to community centers around the state.
Wendy Doely of the Flathead City-County Health Department told local news provider KAJ18.com that the grants would help the children immensely.
"[The foundation has] identified dental health for children as a need across the state, and they decided to provide the funding to community health centers across the state to make sure we reached out to those children who may be most in need of dental care," Doely said.
