How do I Add a Samsung Printer to My MAC?

I have been using my Windows computer for quite sometime now, but recently I switched to Mac on advise of my friend. I have a Samsung wireless printer too which was set as default on my windows PC, but since the change i am not able to connect my printer to Mac. For some reason my Mac would not detect the printer at all and I do not really know why. Does anybody here have any idea then kindly reply back. I need immediate help.
