All pupils playing rugby and hockey are required to wear mouthguards, and we strongly recommend that these are custom fitted.
OPRO, the dental organisation that specialises in mouthguards, visits school at the beginning of every academic year (September)
to take impressions and supply named mouthguards. Information about this service is emailed to new and existing pupils during the
summer holidays, and orders need to be placed online a minimum of a week in advance of the visit. More information about OPRO can
be found on the OPRO website:

The next Kent College OPRO visit is Friday 7 September 2018.
If your child already has a mouthguard we recommend that you check that it still fits correctly before the term begins.
If you are unable to attend the fitting in September, mouthguards can still be ordered through the OPRO website.
Cheaper mouthguards are also available from sports’ shops, and it is useful to have a spare mouthguard moulded and ready for use.
