Sammamish Dentist donates Custom Mouth Guards to 7/8 Green Team

The Skyline Spartans 7/8 Green team received a special bonus this week - custom mouth guards for every player on the team - a great donation to the Spartan Green from the office of Dr Anna Lisin!  Nothing is better than a custom fitted mouth guard for player protection.  Mouth guards are not only there to protect the players teeth and tongue, they are an integral part of protecting players from concussion.

If you are interested in having your player custom fitted, you can learn more about Dr Lisin's practice on her Website.
