Every year, thousands of people are treated for injuries—such as broken jaw, cuts to the mouth, chipped, broken and knocked out teeth—that could have been prevented by wearing a properly fitted mouthguard, many needing visits to hospital emergency departments and extensive dental treatment.
eviDent seeks to reverse this trend and is inviting dental practices to join its campaign by pledging to donate $10 for every mouthguard they fit at their practice in March.
In return, eviDent commits to promote those practices on the eviDent Foundation website and via social media, as well as to sporting clubs affiliated with the campaign. eviDent with also provide posters and flyers for display at participating practices, featuring their sporting ambassadors the Melbourne Rebels.
So, what are you waiting for? Register here to remind parents and players of the importance of wearing a mouthguard during sport, while partnering with eviDent to improve the oral health of Australians.
