About Us

The European Association for Sports Dentistry was founded in 2014 in Paris, France, by Sports Dentists.

Our common ground was our findings that athletes have a neglected  and underestimated Oral Health. We also share the same ideas about the Sports Dentistry development through customized screening and treatment protocols, research and epidemiology. We now have all the necessary scientific evidence available proving that the Oral Health is a major risk factor for athletes' injuries and it directly influences their performance.

Our goal is to join our experience and ideas in order to define and develop the important relation between Dentistry and the exercised human body just as any other Medical Specialty relates in Sports. Our vision is to make Sports Dentistry be a part of the multidisciplinary Sports Medicine science.

 

Our mission is the promotion of Sports Dentistry and its importance on the general health and performance, at the level of individual athletes and sports organizations (local, national and international) as well as the development of strategies of Oral Health prevention by education and information.

The European Association for Sports Dentistry recognizes the need for the education of dentists about sports dentistry and encourages the development of Sports Dentistry Courses. Those courses need to meet certain criteria and standards in order to provide the dentists the best possible education. The EA4SD announces the "Criteria for an EA4SD Approved Sports Dentistry Course".
