Founded more than 20 years ago in 1997 by Dr. Anthony Lovat BDS., OPRO is the world’s most technically advanced mouthguard company and a leading pioneer in oral protection. From their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Hertfordshire, they are dedicated to bringing cutting-edge technology, innovation and safety to all athletes, at all levels of sport.
Over the years, OPRO have supplied gum shields to some of the world’s leading athletes and are proud to be the official sports mouthguard supplier to England & GB Hockey.
British heritage is important. All OPRO products are made in the UK and available around the world through a network of retailers and distributors. Their gum shields are CE certified and in 2007 were awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation in recognition of their ground-breaking work in the field of oral protection. In April 2019, they were recognised yet again for their work and received the Queens Award for Innovation for our Snap-Fit range.
Pushing boundaries is in OPRO’s DNA. They are constantly researching new ways of improving our products. Their gum shields are now available with a Biomaster antimicrobial additive, which is proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99%, keeping your mouth protected just as much off the field, as on it.
The first 20 years for OPRO have been an exciting journey and we look forward to the next 20 years and beyond. No matter what the future holds, they will be following your sporting career as you continue to excel.
OPRO are proud to be the official mouthguard supplier to England Hockey and have worked closely with the association for over 15 years, supplying all age groups from the under 16s to the women’s gold medal winning team at the Olympics in Rio, 2016.
‘We are delighted to have been partners with both Great Britain Hockey and England Hockey for so many years and it is an honour to work with such iconic organisations and talented players during these exciting times for the sport.’
