What's Our Story?
Having lost two of his front teeth the day before his 21st birthday in a basketball game, Chris learnt the lesson the hard way how crucial it is to wear a mouthguard when playing sport. Our family has since been involved with rugby in Auckland for over 25 years. Chris has previously coached and managed the Mt Albert Grammar School 1st XV and Under 15's, and he also coached at Suburbs Rugby Club for 8 years, winning the Coach of the Year in 2006.
We were given a mouthguard from overseas in Suburb's colours and our son wore it in his final year at Suburbs.
We were constantly asked where other players could get one, so we decided to make two-tone mouthguards available in NZ.
Originally we looked at getting our two tone mouthguards made overseas but we couldn't be absolutely sure what chemicals they might contain. We wanted to be confident that our team coloured mouth guards were safe in ALL regards, so we decided that even though this might impact the cost, we would get them made in New Zealand.
