Awarded April 2012

The James S. Madigan dental office has been serving the Orrville area since 1968 in the office at 310 Maple Street. They provide services ranging from general dental procedures to cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and advanced dental procedures such as dental implants, snoring and sleep apnea appliances, and laser treatment of fever blisters and cold sores.

Office manager Linda Madigan, wife of Dr. Madigan, accepted the award.

They have hired graduates and students from the dental assisting program, have had members serving on the dental advisory committee, participate in clinicals, placements and internships for current students, and have provided judges, equipment and other items for skill contests.

Three of their eight current employees have taken Career Center dental assisting programs – Jourdan Madigan, now an expanded function dental assistant, who can place fillings; Nicole Rhodes, certified dental assistant who can polish, do sealants and xrays, and Heather Fox, a current junior, who will be pursuing radiology and certification next year, when she is 18.

Nominating James S. Madigan Dental Office was Dental Assisting instructor Shelly Perry.  “I can always count on them to take at least one student every year, and help me as the student continues their training. Several of their staff members are former students in my program. Throughout the years, many of their staff have served on my advisory committee, helped with competitions, and been available for anything I may need.”

We thank James and Linda Madigan and their staff for their ongoing support of our Dental Assisting program.
