Whitewater Oral Surgery Group Helps Protect Smiles

Mouth guards are recommended or required for many sports and activities because they protect the teeth, mouth, and face from injury. Drs. Kevin G. Kempers, Eric W. Nelson, Justin T. Hastings, Paul Clark, Jake Peterson, and their team all came together to provide professionally fitted mouth guards at no charge to children in the Boise area during this year’s Defend Your Mouth Day event.

We look forward to hosting Defend Your Mouth Day again next year!
