Our Efforts of Protecting Young Athletes


Several weeks ago Wellesley Dental Group partnered up with Wellesley School Athletics to organize raffles among the students who are actively engaged in contact sports. Lacrosse, baseball and softball team players entered the drawing to get a complimentary custom sports mouthguard for one member on each team. The initiative, dubbed “Protecting Our Athletes”, was organized by Drs. Ali & Ali in an effort to spread awareness of the importance of oral protection on the sports field. Knocked-out and chipped teeth should not be on the list of trophies the young athletes get after a game. Their health, hundreds of dollars and parents’ piece of mind can be preserved with the help of a proper-fitting sports mouthguard!

After the drawings were complete, the lucky winners visited the office of Wellesley Dental Group at 5 Seaward Rd in Wellesley. The process started with an individual consultation, during which the students explored their options in different levels of protection, demanded by the sport they play, and specific preferences of the  design (team colors or logo). As you can see on the picture above, the mouthguard fits comfortably in the mouth and offers stylish protection! The young players had their custom sports mouthguards manufactured within a week and reported to be relieved to see how comfortable they are. A custom mouthguard allows the athlete to speak and breathe easily, without the need to clench their teeth to keep it place. Opposite is often the case with basic store-bought mouthguards.
