Founded and still owned by Dr. Anthony Lovat, a former dentist, OPRO has grown to become the most innovative and progressive mouthguard company in the world. Anthony’s belief was that all children and adults should have the best possible protection during sport for their teeth and gums, through easy access to well-made, Custom-Fit mouthguards obtained via an impression-taking visit.
OPRO got their big break when Roger Uttley, former England Rugby player and at the time Head of Rugby at Harrow School, invited Anthony to speak at a PE conference to an audience of around 20 schoolteachers, where Anthony explained how his mouthguard service would benefit pupils enabling peace of mind for parents. Today 20 years on, OPRO supplies over 1000 schools and clubs nationwide with Custom-Fit mouthguards. Their Hemel Hempstead based laboratory makes around 3,000 bespoke mouthguards a day.
Innovation and technical expertise lie at the heart of OPRO who obsess about every detail of product and customer service; in 2007, they also received the Queen’s Award for Innovation.
OPRO have formed many partnerships representing a wide range of sports around the world; one such partnership in dentistry is with Dental Directory. Dental Directory now offer the range of Custom-Fit mouthguards to dental practices all over the UK. Most importantly, every OPRO mouthguard is made in the United Kingdom.
With a durable outer layer for optimum impact protection and a flexible inner layer for supreme comfort and fit, OPRO Gold Braces mouthguard is a superior Self-Fit Competition level mouthguard. What’s more, all of the Gold mouthguards and cases contain an antimicrobial additive proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria, so you are assured the best possible protection against bacteria and germs.
