    Sports Safety Month Is Here

    Calling all sports enthusiasts!

    Whether you are a player, coach, teacher, parent or caregiver, it is time to remind everyone to play it safe during recreational and organized sports.  Together, let’s help prevent serious and painful injuries that can take the fun out of your game.  Take five and follow these five simple safety tips!

    1.  Mouth guards are a must. Mouth guards are significantly less expensive than the cost to repair an injury, and dentists can make customized mouth guards that hold teeth in place and allow for normal speech and breathing.
    2. Helmets are always helpful. Helmets absorb the energy of an impact and help prevent damage to the head.
    3. Have 20/20 vision with protective eyewear. Eyes are extremely vulnerable to damage, especially when playing sports.
    4. Face shields save skin…and more. Hockey pucks, footballs and racquetballs can cause severe facial damage at any age.
    5. Cheer and shout out your support for mandatory protective gear. Athletes who participate in football, hockey and boxing are required to wear mouth guards. If mouth guards have been proven to significantly decrease the risk of oral injuries, why is it not mandatory in every sport for kids to wear them?
