LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – High Peaks Dental and USA Luge have announced the continuation of a partnership that began in 2013. High Peaks Dental will remain the Official Dental Service Provider of USA Luge through 2018.

The practice is located on State Route 3 in Plattsburgh, N.Y. and provides its patients with quality care, comfort and convenience.

USA Luge is based in Lake Placid. The national governing body for luge has won five Olympic medals, and recently concluded its best World Cup season in history with a record 18 medals.

“Each and every one of us here at High Peaks Dental are thrilled to renew our support for USA Luge,” said Dr. William P. Caldon, D.M.D. and co-owner of High Peaks Dental along with Dr. Michael O’Connor. “We feel privileged to be part of the only United States Olympic organization that makes its home in the Adirondacks, in Lake Placid. We look forward to supporting the team as they prepare for the 2018 PyeongChang, South Korea Winter Games, with each athlete sporting their High Peaks Dental ‘Gold Medal Smile’. Go USA Luge.”

As part of the relationship, High Peaks Dental not only cares for the team’s dental needs, but also creates mouth guards for each individual athlete, a key component of their safety equipment.

Patients who employ the services of High Peaks Dental see images of USA Luge National Team members in the corridor leading to the examination rooms.

“We are indebted to Dr. Caldon and his dedicated staff,” said USA Luge CEO Jim Leahy. “High Peaks Dental provides needed services for our athletes and staff. We are very happy to partner with such a high profile regional practice that gives back to its community. We hope to make them proud next winter, and certainly, in PyeongChang.”

As part of their commitment to the Plattsburgh area and its youth, High Peaks Dental offered a free Kid’s Day on Saturday, April 9. A hygienist showed the youngsters how to brush and floss properly.

Three members of the USA Luge National Team – 2014 Olympian Aidan Kelly of West Islip, N.Y., Jake Hyrns of Muskegon, Mich., and Raychel Germaine, of Roswell, Ga. – were on hand talking to the youngsters about the sport.
