About Sportsguard Laboratories
As a dentist, Dr. Dan Brett, DDS, saw first hand the injuries athletes sustained by not wearing mouthguards and the expensive costs associated with oral-facial correction. Being a sports enthusiast, Dr. Brett was then driven to develop a professional custom-made athletic mouthguard that offered protection without compromising comfort and affordability. He now holds a patent in mouthguard designs.
Sportsguard Laboratories, Inc., founded by Dr. Brett in 1996, has become the industry's leader in innovative technology used for custom athletic mouthguards. Dr. Brett is the co-developer of PolyShokTM, the material used in SLI's mouthguards. PolyShokTM is a high impact polymer that provides more shock absorption than any comparable mouthguard material in use today. SLI's mouthguards can be seen being worn by a number of professional athletes in all major sports.
