Mouthguard Clinics Help Children Keep Their Teeth Safe When Participating in Sports
In the fall of 1999, dental staff received many requests regarding mouthguards. Mouthguard clinics were held at the Brockville and Smiths Falls Health Unit offices. Dental Assistants and Dental Hygienists worked together to make and insert approximately 20 mouthguards.
The cost per mouthguard was $25.00 which allowed the dental team to raise approximately $500. This money was put into the SAAINT fund (a fund for Seniors, Adolescents and Adults in Need of Treatment). This money is used for people in the community who have the need for emergency dental treatment, but who do not have the money or dental benefits for treatment.
