Sport injuries are prevalent and require attention by the dental professional. Our profession is sometimes too busy dealing with improving our treatment results and too often abandons the preventive interventions that should be our main goal. Each and every patient should be engaged in a comprehensive and well-organized prevention program. Preventive measures can truly change our patients’ health and wellbeing. In this course, different levels of prevention will be discussed providing keys for advocacy for sport players as well as enhancing long term success of dental treatments. General, introductory, aspects of sport dentistry will be discussed as well.
