Local Athletes Get Ready for Fall Sports with New Mouth Guards

*9-year-old Cash needs a mouth guard for football season* (Gillette, Wyo.) The old Godfather's Pizza has been under construction on the corner of Lakeway and 4-J for the past several months. But today the new Synergy Dental Center opened its doors weeks early so that the Gillette Junior Football League could get ready for their new season. Dr. David Porter and his staff fitted nearly 250 third through fifth graders this morning for NFL-grade mouth guards. Practice for the Junior Football League begins in August. They're expecting more elementary-aged players next week.They plan to get as many junior high and high school athletes set up with mouth guards, as well, in August. Each child enrolled for Junior Football this Fall, accompanied by a parent or guardian can receive their mouth guard for free. They have an impression made of their mouth and then receive that mouth guard made especially for them before practices start. Synergy Dental is at 501 Lakeway Drive. Their Grand Opening is slated for Thursday, July 14th. You can call 307-622-1311 for more information on their next mouth guard clinic. #county17 #news
