As you may be aware, England Hockey recommends the wearing of custom fitted mouthguards at all levels. The school policy is to adhere to these guidelines. ALL girls will be taking part in hockey in the Michaelmas term and will therefore need a mouthguard to take part.
We have asked FirstLine Mouthguards, an organisation run by a team of local dentists, to provide a mouthguard fitting service on Monday 9th September. Their dental team will visit Wychwood to give everyone the opportunity to have a dentally fitted mouthguard at a reasonable cost. The turnaround is usually one week so the girls should receive their mouthguards by the following Monday.
The advantages of a FirstLine mouthguard are:
- They will be individually named
- A prompt replacement in case of loss – FirstLine keep a model of the original impression taken
- A comprehensive after-care service – the dentist can check the fitting and comfort of your child’s mouthguard
In order to take advantage of this service you should submit your order via the online ordering facility (Click Buy Online) at www.firstlinemouthguards.co.uk no later than Saturday, 7th September.
In all cases, please deal directly with FirstLine Mouthguards and not the school.
Alternatively, if you do not wish to purchase a dentist fit mouthguard from FirstLine Mouthguards, please ensure you daughter has one purchased elsewhere for the start of the Michaelmas term. If your daughter already has a mouthguard, please check it fits. Her growth can affect the fitting and effectiveness of a mouthguard.
