Butte Dental Office Participates in Several Community Outreach Events

BUTTE, MT--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Butte Family Dental, a trusted dental implant center, offered dental screenings at local elementary schools in February as part of National Children's Dental Health Month.

Dr. William Brennick, owner of Butte Family Dental, and his two associates, Dr. Tara Eller Gilbreath and Dr. Kyle McIntyre, conducted the screenings through the local chapter of the Montana Dental Association at Emerson Elementary School and Kennedy Elementary School.

The staff of Butte Family Dental is heavily involved in community events and activities. This month, Dr. Brennick visited the New Hope Pregnancy Clinic to discuss the importance of good oral health for expecting mothers, and Dr. McIntyre visited a local preschool called The Crown Academy to speak with 3- to 5-year-old children about brushing their teeth.

During the February dental screenings, the doctors examined third- and fifth-grade students for dental decay and sent reports home to their parents.

"The staff loves playing a role in the outreach programs. Many of the dental assistants were involved with the dental screenings last month," Dr. Brennick said. "This month, they put together goodie bags for the preschool kids."

Butte Family Dental, 820 Sampson St., is owned by Dr. Brennick and includes two associate dentists, Dr. Gilbreath and Dr. McIntyre. The practice also has two full-time dental hygienists, four dental assistants and three front office staff.
