Team members from Plymouth Albion RFC benefit from protected smiles, thanks to the Devonport Dental Education Facility (DEF) run by the Peninsula Dental Social Enterprise.
The DEF team has provided advice to team members, and created and fitted tailored mouth guards for each player.
Albion team members visit the Devonport DEF in Devonport, next door to the Plymouth Albion ground, for an initial dental assessment and to have impressions made of their teeth so that the mouth guards can be made.
The players return to Devonport when the mouth guards arrive to have them fitted and to receive advice about how best to use them.
The mouth guards are important protection for the players against dental trauma.
