 ‘Safe Smiles’ is a unique program the Greater Cleveland Dental Society (GCDS) developed in conjunction with Case Western Reserve University’s School of Dental Medicine (CWRU-SDM). Our goals are to create individual, custom-­made mouthguards for high school football players in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) as well as to educate and inspire these youth in underserved communities on the lifetime benefits of good oral health. For the 2017 season, the participating schools will be John Adams, Glenville, and Whitney Young.  This year we anticipate between 200-220 football players, so much help will be needed.  The program will include one-on-one educating with a dental professional and relationship building as we make impressions and subsequently fit the mouthguards, and the 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.

TWO HOURS OF CONTINUING EDUCATION - FOR YOUR VOLUNTEERED TIME.
