Academy for Sports Dentistry
The Academy for Sports Dentistry was founded in 1983 in San Antonio, Texas, as a forum for dentists, physicians, trainers, coaches, dental technicians, and educators interested in exchanging ideas related to Sports Dentistry and the dental needs of athletes at risk to sports' injuries.

Activities include the collection and dissemination of information on dental athletic injuries and the encouragement of research on the prevention of dental injuries to athletes.

The Academy boasts an international membership of over 800 members, many of whom are former athletes involved in a wide variety of research activities or with a b interest in this field of study.

One of the Academy's most important activities is hosting an annual meeting comprised of scientific sessions and a business meeting focusing on this growing healthcare concern. During the meeting a half day course on the fabrication of professionally diagnosed and designed custom made mouthguards is held. At that time each participant fabricates the different types of custom mouthguards recommended by the Academy.

The Academy's mandate is to welcome interested colleagues from all healthcare disciplines to promote the advancement of research/development and education in this field.
