Optimal oral health is critical to preventing and controlling oral and craniofacial disease, conditions, and injuries. It requires the ability to improve access to preventive services and dental care through a compassionate health-equitable approach.
The American Dental Association’s Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention (CAAP) and the Academy for Sports Dentistry (ASD) team up to highlight how preventing an injury during sports is an example of health equity, access to care, and the importance of the provider and patient voice. This presentation also briefly addresses benefits of sports and activity participation, treatment of injuries, and performance gains through oral health.
As part of the continued focus on the ADA’s Action for Dental Health, this presentation provides useful narrative examples on the importance of providing injury preventive care in the dental office empowers the athletes to have confidence in not only their smile.
