Abstract: A questionnaire was distributed to Singapore Registered Dental Practitioners, seeking demographic details, knowledge of mouthguards in preventing dental injury during contact sport, current attitudes to advice and provision to at-risk patients. 636 questionnaires were posted and 226 valid replies were received. Most dentists believed that mouthguards reduced the prevalence of dental injury in contact sports. Undergraduate education was the primary source of dentists' knowledge. Seventy-four per cent of respondents actively recommended mouthguards, but only 26 per cent made one or more in 1992. Only 3 dentists made more than 10. Twenty-eight per cent were comfortable with their knowledge in this area, and 76 per cent would be willing to assist a public awareness campaign.
