At McBeth Orthodontics, our number one concern is our patients. This is why Dr Susan Mcbeth and the McBeth Orthodontic Team are joining football great Emmitt Smith, his family, and the American Association of Orthodontics during the month of April to help raise awareness and increase the use of facial protection in youth sports in Rogers, Bentonville, Siloam Springs and the surrounding areas in the Ozarks.
Watch this video on YouTube about the importance of wearing mouth guards and protective gear when playing contact sports. You can also download a free Emmitt Smith Family Poster at http://www.braces.org/sportsafety/sports_safety_tips.html
The McBeth Orthodontic Team asks all our patients to be proactive and protect yourselves when playing any contact sport, organized or just with friends, by wearing a mouth guard. It only takes a split second to damage your beautiful smile! Too often, a patient comes into our office with a preventable sports injury. Extensive dental care is then required to repair the injury and many patients will experience needless discomfort, aggravation, loss of time, and incur an unnecessary financial investment throughout their lives to maintain the dental work required to repair the injury. So please “Play It Safe” and wear a mouth guard.
If you have any questions about what type of mouth guard will work best for you or your child… please contact our office to discuss options.
