  • Success & Innovation from the beginning

    GW Evans Dental Lab was founded on the 1st November, 1985 by Dental Technician, Grant Evans. He leased rooms in a Dental Surgery at Morphett Vale prior to building a purpose built lab at his residence in Happy Valley.

    In 1992 GW Evans Dental Laboratory Pty Ltd embarked on expansion program to include Cobalt Chrome Alloy Denture Casting. Mr James Morrison joined the business after working in London and an Adelaide Dental Laboratory for more than 30 years. As expansion continued a Receptionist and Courier Driver was employed.

    In 1994 the Dental Laboratory had been outgrown its premises and to facilitate further expansion it was decided to move to a more central larger building. After much consideration it was decided appropriate to move to the current premises a converted 4 bedroom house at 22 Paringa Avenue, Somerton Park.

    In 1996 Director, Grant Evans completed a specialist course on Custom Laminated Mouthguards in Sydney hosted by Mr. Julian Hodges one of the pioneers of custom laminated mouthguards in Australia. Grant Evans embarked on educating and promoting Custom Laminated Mouthguards directly to the Sporting Clubs, Teams and schools, Performance Mouthguards was born. Due to the high demand for the high quality mouthguards Dentists and Sales Representatives were employed. As mouthguard production increased rapidly, in 1997 Ms Kathy Stavrianakis was employed to manage Performance Mouthguards Dental Laboratory. After 8 years of dedicated hard work, Kathy left the business and moved to better her career and work for Briteguard Mouthguards in Victoria.

    Mrs. Mirsada Sabanovic joined Performance Mouthguards in November 2005 as the new Manager of the mouthguard department, her desire to work to a very high standard fitted well with the philosophy of the dental laboratory. TAFE students from the Gilles Plains Dental Faculty also completed their on the job training in all aspects of laboratory production.

    In 2006 G W Evans Dental Laboratory expansion led to the new business identity of Platinum Prosthetics. The Dental Laboratory provided the following services to the Dental Surgery and Public:

    • Full Acrylic Dentures
    • Partial Acrylic Dentures
    • Intraoral Snoring Therapy Appliances
    • Denture Relines
    • Denture Repairs
    • Orthodontic and Orthopaedic Appliances
    • Custom Laminated Mouthguards
    • Chrome Cobalt Castings
    • Bleaching Trays
    • Occlusal Splints

    In March 2013 Platinum Prosthetics was sold to a clinical Dental Technician and Performance Mouthguards is now the sole business of G W Evans Dental Laboratory Pty Ltd specialising in the fitting and manufacture of custom laminated sports mouthguards at 22 Paringa Avenue, Somerton Park. Dr Gina Ho works in conjunction with Grant Evans at Performance Mouthguards Dental Surgery and they also visit schools and sporting clubs to take dental impressions for the manufacture of custom laminated sports mouthguards which are completed on the premises at the Dental Laboratory.

  • As one might expect with a professional sports team comprising highly paid players, every effort has to be made to minimise any risk to the players — for both commercial and litigious reasons. To this end we do not cut corners or take cheap options in regards any protective or rehabilitation devices. We go for the best available and Performance Mouthguards is outstanding.

  • Students from Prince Alfred College were measured for and fitted with sports mouthguards by the Performance Mouthguard Company. The service provided and the products themselves were excellent. Furthermore the company was able to fit around our school timetable to ensure minimal disruption to our students. I have no hesitation in recommending Performance Mouthguards.

    I have been through some extensive orthodontic work in 2014/15, due to the rigours of AFL football I had orthodontic bands fitted on the palatal side of my teeth. I put all my trust in Grant Evans from Performance Mouthguards to fit a comfortable Performance Junior Mouthguard allowing me to talk and breathe while undergoing the dental work. I will have a Performance Pro mouthguard fitted as soon as my orthodontic treatment is complete.
