Dental Injuries: Field-Side Pocket Guide

A guide for parents, athletic trainers, caregivers, teachers and... patients!

Dental injuries, whether simple or complex, often require treatment onsite at the time of the injury when typically there is no dentist present. Proper attention can save pain, alleviate anxiety, and years of costly dental treatment. A little knowledge, as they say, can go along way.

Dear Doctor has created a handy pocket guide for managing dental injuries so you can be prepared the next time players come to you holding their mouth in pain.

We have provided this guide in 2 formatting options below. The first is a printer friendly letter size which can easily be printed on any inkjet or laser printer. The second option can be printed and folded to be used as a pocket guide. If you are interested in purchasing professionally printed copies, see the options below.
