myORTHODONTIST safeguards the smiles of the Calgary Stampeders this CFL season.
We are so excited to announce our partnership with the Calgary Stampeders this CFL season!
This year, Dr. Walinder Dhol and Dr. Joseph Yu will be safeguarding the smiles of the Stamps as their Preferred Provider for CUSTOM PRO Mouthguards.
This partnership is part of myORTHODONTIST’s ongoing mission to help prevent injury in sports in the Calgary community. In sports, mouthguards are a critical piece of safety equipment that helps cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. A custom-fitted mouthguard is precisely designed in a laboratory by a dental professional.
“In Canada, the estimated number of dental injuries attributed to sports-related accidents have been reported to be as high as 39%.” explains Dr. Dhol. “That is just too many knocked out teeth, and split lips. A mouth guard is a simple solution that can protect not only children but adults as well.”
At myORTHODONTIST, we are pleased to offer an annual Mouth Safety Program for our patients and community.
Children and adults can be fitted for a custom mouth guard with a $5 donation. A portion of the proceeds will go to support KidSport™ a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance to kids who just want to play some sports!
“Cost should never be a barrier for safety.” says, Dr. Dhol. “Providing affordable mouth guards, is just one way that we can give back and protect the smiles of Calgary’s adults and youth.”
This CFL season, myORTHODONTIST is also a proud sponsor of the 2016 Calgary Stampeders Family Fun Zone.
