FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
High school teams will be a little safer when they take the field this fall thanks to the generosity of a Tempe dentist at South Mountain Family Dental
Members of the Marcos de Niza High School teams will be a little safer when they take the field this fall thanks to the generosity of a Tempe dentist at South Mountain Family Dental. Dr. Michael Dickerson and his staff fitted each player on the Padres football teams with a FREE custom athletic mouthguard to protect the players from dental injuries in practices and games during the upcoming season.
The decision to sponsor the local high school football teams was an easy one for Dr. Dickerson. “We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of dental care to our patients in the community,” according to Dr. Michael Dickerson of South Mountain Family Dental. South Mountain Family Dental has been embraced by the community as a full-service family dentist offering a wide array of general and cosmetic services. “What better way to show our appreciation to the residents of our community than to do something that will protect their children who are members of the hometown teams.” Dr. Dickerson explained, “We wanted to reach out to our community and decided to sponsor Marcos de Niza based on the long-time patients relations we have had with some of their amazing teachers!”
Custom fitted athletic mouthguards are designed to help athletes avoid dental trauma while participating in contact sports. The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: acrobats, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shot putting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, and wrestling. Other experts include baseball and softball infielders on that list. They further recommend the mouthguard to be worn during all practices and competition.
Sponsorship of the community organizations and events is nothing new to Dr. Dickerson and team at South Mountain Family Dental. They have also sponsored Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation this year’s “Par for a Purpose” Golf Tournament, “Holiday Hoopla” and “HOPE in Education”. Dr. Dickerson and team also support the local retirement community and go out to retirement homes for complementary visual oral health examination.
