Sports industry in India has evolved at a fast pace in the last 2 decades. As a result, the demand of sports healthcare professionals involved in different disciplines has increased. With courses being developed on varied subjects like sports medicine, sports nutrition, sports physiotherapy, etc; availability of well-trained sports healthcare professionals is increasing. Sports medicine has now evolved into a multi-disciplinary field and has now started recognizing oral health as an important aspect of athlete’s overall health. It is now time that the dental fraternity too awakens and understands as to what is their role, not just in managing the oral health of the athlete, but looking into many issues that connect the oral and overall health of the athlete. Improving athlete performance is the key element and a dentist in the athlete health care team is sure an important addition.
