Ortho Clinics in Tripoli Lebanon is starting the initiative for the development of well established Sports Dental Clinic to treat and prevent sports injury of professional and recreational athletes.
Our orthodontist provide mouth guards custom made to prevent injury. Our dentist treat the injured teeth by applying the deep knowledge in dental medicine and health.
Sports Dentistry is under the umbrella of Sports Medicine, these two specialties are rare and we are not even able to find them in Lebanon. That is why we are starting a Sports Dentistry initiative to learn the complexities of such injuries and we are seeking help from interested medical professionals in the region of Tripoli, Beirut or other areas of Lebanon. With the hope of finding interested and enthusiastic professionals who are committed to the specialty. In the future we are planning to send committed professionals Dentists and physicians alike to the United States or other leading countries to acquire the fellowship needed to become as knowledgeable as possible in the field.
