We are committed to keeping you safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic!

At Madison Family Dental care, we are doing everything we can to keep you safe during this difficult time. 

-Social distancing is important!  Our new protocols ensure that patients will avoid contact with each other as much as possible. Patients wait in their cars instead of in the waiting room and are met at the door by our dedicated staff when they are able to enter without coming into contact with other patients.

-We are taking our temperatures every morning….and we will take yours when you arrive!  In addition to screening ourselves for any signs of illness, we are screening every patient before they enter our operatories to make sure that they are symptom free and that they have not travelled or been in contact with anyone who is ill in the past 14 days. 

-We are keeping things clean!  We thoroughly clean and sanitize both the operatories and the office after each patient…including the front desk area, the restroom, door handles, and all other surfaces that patients might come into contact with.

-We are reducing the number of patients we see each day.  We have reorganized our schedule to ensure that we have at least 15 minutes between patients to clean and sanitize properly.  In addition, we have moved to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule to ensure that we have time between working days to thoroughly clean.   

-We are wearing personal protective equipment.  Our front office staff is masked, and Dr. Bell, his assistant, and the hygienists are equipped with N-95 masks, face shields, and full-length gowns that are changed before and after they see you.

-We are keeping the air you breath clean.  Dental procedures create aerosols that can potentially spread illness.  Because of this, it is important that we control the production of these aerosols and keep the air that you breath in our office clean.  To do this we have implemented the following:

-we have installed UV filters in our ducts

-we have converted our operatories into negative pressure rooms that are continually filtering the air. 

-We have installed Medical-grade air purifiers in each operatory and throughout the office.

-We have installed extraoral high-speed evacuators that vacuum aerosols out of the air as they are produced.

Mouth Guards
 

Mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment in contact sports.  They should be worn by athletes of all ages who participate in sports such as:

  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Wrestling
  • Basketball
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Soccer
  • …any sport where contact is a possibility.


Wearing a mouth guard helps prevent against structural damage to your teeth and jaw and also helps prevent injuries such as lacerations to your cheeks, tongue, and lips.  Mouth guards have also been shown to help decrease the risk of concussions.

Mouth guards are available in most any sporting goods store, but you should be careful when purchasing a mouth guard.  Mouth guards like this do not offer the best level of protection.  They are also usually ill-fitting and uncomfortable.  

For the highest level of comfort and protection, you should visit your dentist for a custom mouth guard fitting.  A custom mouth guard is created specifically for the optimal protection of YOUR mouth.  It is created with thin plastic that is hardened to protect your teeth.  The thinness of the custom mouth guard allows for easy breathing and also allows for easy communication (especially important for you star quarterbacks calling out the signals).  

See your dentist today for a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth and ensure that you maintain the highest level of performance on the field, court, or rink.
