September 6th and 8th Springbrook Family Dentistry had the pleasure of hosting the JV and Varsity football players of Iroquois High School! We worked together with the football coach and booster club president to put together a fantastic event that made free custom mouthguards for any player who wanted one! We were able to provide 35 players with a mouth guard of the course of those two days.

 

Custom Mouth Guards

 

What’s so great about custom mouth guards compared to what you can buy over-the-counter? Custom mouthguards have been shown to reduce the chance of concussion in contact sports by 50%. When you hear all the scary statistics about head trauma to football players and problems it can cause later on in life you realize it’s incredibly important! The other benefit of custom mouthguards is that because they are fit specifically to the player’s mouth they are more comfortable which means they are more likely to be worn while playing.

 

We had a great time working with all the players and parents and hope to continue our involvement with our local schools in the months and years to come!

Dear patients, friends and family,

In light of recent events surrounding the Corona Virus/COVID-19 and the guidance of our national and state dental societies, we will be rescheduling all 6 month cleaning appointments and any elective dental treatment over the next few weeks.

We continue to be available for dental emergencies and are accessible via phone and email. We love our patients and are willing to do whatever we can for the sake of community health and well being, especially for those among us that could be most affected by infection.

At this time, we have NO known cases of COVID-19 among our staff. Dental offices are at extreme risk for propagation of the virus due to the large number of aerosols created during dental procedures, as well as the close proximity we are in to our patients. Therefore we will continue to adhering to the highest levels of infection control.

I am confident all of us will be better off if we all do our part to protect the community and "flatten the curve". If you have any questions or are looking for any updates please follow our Facebook page or call us at 716-652-0600.
