Mouthguard Information 2018

Another mouthguard season is fast approaching. Last year's change of format was a great success and we will be following the same routine for the 2018 mouthguard season.

We would also like to extend an invitation to all parents who have other children with mouthguard requirements to avail themselves of our service. Extra hard copies of our forms can be collected from the Health Centre or the attached PDF form can be printed.

Junior School

Everything will run as per usual in 2018. Galadent Forms and Payment Permission Slips will be distributed out the first week back from holidays. Parents will be required to complete all paperwork and return it to school by the date specified.

Middle and Senior School Boarders
Mouthguard impressions will be taken in the Health Centre on:

  • Friday 16 February 2018 3.00pm - 6.00pm

Middle and Senior School (Non Boarders)
Mouthguard impressions will be taken in MacKellar Hall on the following dates:

  • Saturday 17 February 2018 10.00am - 2.00pm
  • Friday 23 February 2018 3.30pm - 7.00pm
  • Saturday 24 February 2018 10.00am - 2.00pm

Rather than having everyone showing up at the same time, we will be requiring that all students wishing to get their impression done, have a Parent or Guardian contact us at Galadent on 9249 3867 to make an appointment time. We will do our very best to accommodate your appointment requests.

In 2018 all payments will need to be made directly to Galadent as they will not be deducted from your school account, as in previous years. On our Galadent Form you will see a provision for you to either complete your Credit Card details, attach a cheque made payable to Galadent Dental or alternatively pay in cash sealed in an envelope (marking your son's details on the front of the envelope). Mouthguard impressions cannot be taken unless this payment option has been fully completed. All students will be issued with an itemised Account/Receipt upon delivery of their mouthguard to enable you to claim rebates. Students will be notified of the collection dates and times as they are determined.

All students in Middle and Senior School (not Boarders), who wish to collect hard copies of the Galadent Form, please look out for a clearly labelled container outside the door of the Health Centre. Alternatively, you can download the PDF copy of our form to print off and complete. This form must be fully completed and signed to bring with you to your allocated appointment time.
