If someone in your family is involved in sports, you should ask about an athletic guard. This special appliance protects your teeth while you play. While its possible to get a generic mouth guard from the sports store, your teeth will be better served to get one from the dentist. Custom fitted guards we can provide are a better choice because they are:
· Helpful in preventing concussions
· Better at staying in place when accidents occur
· Custom fitted to your teeth for improved comfort and protection
Dr. Umberger's journey into dentistry began many years ago when he realized his combined loves of science, art, and helping people. By the time he was just fourteen, Dr. Umberger knew that dentistry would be the field that blended these passions into his life's calling. In 1997 he graduated from the University of Nebraska with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. Graduation did not end his education, however; instead, Dr. Umberger is a lifelong student who has continued an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Ehrilng Berquist Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as at the Pankey Institute for Continuing Education.
