From a concept that became reality over 20 years ago at a dining room table in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom, OPRO has grown to become the most innovative and progressive mouthguard company in the world.
Founded and still owned by Dr. Anthony Lovat, a former dentist, OPRO grew out of Anthony’s belief that all children should have the best possible protection during sport for their teeth and gums. His idea was that this could happen through easy access to well-made, Custom-Fit mouthguards obtained via a dentist impression visit, from a member of the OPRO dental team, to their school or sports club.
Fast forward 20 years and OPRO’s beginnings at Anthony’s dining room table have passed into company folklore. A lot has happened in that time:
We now supply over 1,000 schools and clubs nationwide with Custom-Fit mouthguards.Our Hemel Hempstead based laboratory can make around 3,000 bespoke mouthguards a day.In 2007, we received the Queen’s Award for Innovation, an accolade we are truly proud of.We have many partnerships representing a wide range of sports around the world.
