My lifelong interest and participation in sports lead me several years ago to become a member of the Academy for Sports Dentistry. I have been providing sports mouth guards to athletes at CSU Northridge, Team USA, and clients to protect them from traumatic dental injuries.
I also became a WNBA season ticket holder -more about that later- and after each L.A.Sparks home game, the season ticket holders are invited to a Q&A session with one of the team. In July, my favorite player, Nnemkadi (Nneka) Ogwumike, was the guest. She had just posted her eighth "double double" for this season. I would like to believe that the fact she is the only Sparks player that consistently wears a mouthguard (that I made for her), contributes to this success.
