Sports Dentistry

The Academy for Sports Dentistry will hold its annual meeting on August 1-3, 2013.  The group's mission is to effectively serve the combination of the fields of dentistry and athletics.  The "team dentist" has a variety of roles:
  • preparation and readiness of the athlete
  • sleep apnea considerations
  • evaluation and management of concussions
  • recognition and treatment of dental trauma
  • restoration of teeth after trauma
  • custom mouthguard fabrication
  • intraoral suturing 
The group is affiliated with the Special Olympics Special Smiles program and the United States Olympic Committee.
