The Scenic Rivers Dental Clinic in Cook was affected by the Little Fork River flooding the week of June 19th.  Currently, we are unable to see patients safely in this clinic.  If you have an appointment scheduled during the month of July at the Cook dental clinic, you will be receiving a call to reschedule.  While we hope to be practicing in the Cook dental clinic as soon as possible, we are unsure of a timeline.  Donations to assist with rehabilitating the clinic can be sent via the following link: Scenic Rivers Health Services *spotfund
