Free custom mouthguards for young athletes ages 10 to 14
This program is available to young athletes ages 10 to 14. The program provides the opportunity to individuals and teams (comprised of youth between the ages of 10 to 14) to visit the nearest Docbraces location (Halifax, Dartmouth, Amherst, Moncton, Charlottetown, Summerside) to have a complimentary custom mouthguard made and to also receive a free mini orthodontic consultation with an Orthodontist. This program is offered at no cost and is a part of Docbraces Project Smile which aims to increase self-confidence and promote pro-social behavior amongst youth..
Research suggests that athletes who do not wear mouthguards are more than 60 times more likely to sustain damage to their teeth, mouth, or bite.
