Mouthguard Mania
Since 2007 Lodi Valley Dental, LLP has been providing custom made mouth guards for the Lodi HS football team. Dr. Crane was instrumental in starting Mouthguard Mania, as he was involved in a similar program while in dental school. LVD closes and invites the entire football team to sign up on the Friday before practice begins in late summer. Every 15 minutes a football player is fitted for a custom fitted mouthguard. LVD knows the risks involved in contact sports and they are committed to making sure the players’ teeth are well protected. LVD is committed to safety and good dental health in all areas of life, including the gridiron.

Lodi Valley Dental, LLP donated all Lodi Area ball teams, including Dane and Harmony Grove, a community baseball or softball hat this year to show their Lodi Pride. The hats were handed out to the recreational program across all of the leagues (4K thru Fast Pitch) and are being coordinated through Creative Marketing, a local company in Lodi.

Ms. Paula and Ms. Thalacker brought their classes to LVD to learn more about Teeth, the Dentist, and oral health.
