2017/18 Representative Teams Sponsorship offer from Hastings Dental Centre
One of the key presenters at last season's "Next Level" induction camp for PMBA's representative teams and long-term supporter of the Club, Tarreq Rashdan of the Hastings Dental Centre has continued a very generous sponsorship offer to PMBA's 2017/18 representative program.
The Australian Dental association estimates 1/3 of dental injuries are sports-related and recommends 4mm professionally-made laminated mouth-guards for all players involved in contact sports including Basketball. It is interesting to note that while other contact sports in the US such as boxing and the NFL include mandatory rules for mouth-guard use, basketball is yet to do so. This results in basketball being the No.1 sport for lost/injured teeth during sporting activities. 5 million teeth a year are damaged by sports-related injuries in the US alone.
As a sponsorship offer to the PMBA Dolphins, the Hastings Dental Centre is supplying all junior & senior representative players within our 2017/18 Dolphins teams with free, custom-fitted mouth-guards.
These custom-fitted guards are valued at a few hundred dollars normally, and the fitting appointment and delivery of the mouth-guards will be free to all representative players. Note however these guards aren't normally suitable for those under the age of 12, or players currently sporting braces. However Tareq is happy to meet and provide guidance on alternative options for those of you in that situation.
We thank Tareq and his team from Hastings Dental Centre for their very generous offer to keep our representative players safe out on the court. Please contact Tareq to make your appointment, quoting your representative team, and get yourself in for your free fitting!
