‘Safe Smiles’ is a unique program the Greater Cleveland Dental Society (GCDS) developed to provide FREE custom made mouth guards to local area high school football players. This program provides a platform to educate and inspire our youth in underserved communities on the lifetime benefits of good oral health. The program will include one-on-one education with a dental professional and relationship building as we make impressions and subsequently fit the mouth guards to each individual student. The program includes development and distribution of educational literature supporting the importance of safe guarding their mouths during (contact) sports in addition to the advantages of good oral hygiene and health. This program also allows the dental community to educate and inspire these students on the various careers in dentistry.
