Door County Dental Care hosted its ninth annual “Free Athletic Mouthguard Day” June 22 at 12 pm. All area student athletes were invited to receive a free custom-fit, team color-coordinated mouthguard.
The event brought 55 local students in to be fitted for free, custom, team-color coordinated mouthguards. Custom fit mouthguards provide superior protection against sports related dental injuries. They are created by taking an impression of the mouth, casting the mold, and then trimming and smoothing the edges. Volunteers and the entire Door County Dental Care staff are involved in the process helping to facilitate the community event at their Sturgeon Bay location.
Dr. Luders is thankful for the involvement of another local business in De Pere. “Lord’s Dental Studio is always instrumental in providing additional help and donations which allows us to make the annual event a success,” Dr. Luders said.
Dr. Hubbard and Dr. Luders recommend that a new, custom-fit mouthguard be crafted each year because as students grow, their bodies change and so does their mouth structure.
