National Children's Dental Health Month

Each February, the American Dental Association sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

We couldn't agree more with this year’s NCDHM campaign slogan: 

“Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste and clean between your teeth for a healthy smile."

Hope B. won our fall Magnifications Contest. Congratulations Hope. Some of those images were very hard to guess!


Our In-office Winter Contest was a big hit!

Did you take a guess at how many mini marshmallows were in the jar?

The Answer: 282 Marshmallows!


The winners were Abigail B. and Adriana A.

They both guessed 285. (The closest answer wins.)

Congratulations girls!

Patient of the Quarter

Congratulations to our patient, Caroline B.!

Caroline has been a patient since October 2010. She came in as a new patient and was placed in our Observation Program. She was not quite ready for any early intervention or treatment. We continued to watch the growth patterns of her permanent teeth. Caroline was ready to start comprehensive treatment in May 2015. She is currently in full braces. We are closing the spaces and coordinating her bite for a perfect smile and she is doing very well. We are sure she will be very excited to get her braces off. Fingers crossed it will be soon.  Keep up the great work Caroline!

Smile Transformation

Wow, Julien's smile transformation was a big hit! He came to our office with a Class III underbite. We opened his bite with a special appliance to move his upper teeth over his lower teeth. He started upper and lower braces treatment in November 2015 and continued with excellent elastic wear. He got his braces off just before Christmas. He did a fantastic job of taking care of his appliances. What a great smile. Congratulations Julien!

It's Snack Time!

Hey parents!  Ever wonder what foods to pack for your braces-wearing student?  We've compiled a list of our favorites along with reminders for foods to avoid.

Here are some great foods to eat with braces:

  • Dairy – yogurt, pudding, soft cheeses
  • Steamed veggies or caprese on a toothpick
  • Soft fruits – melons, grapes, oranges, kiwi, strawberries, blueberries
  • Non-tough meats – lunch meats, meatballs, soft-cooked meats like chicken
  • Seafood – tuna, salmon, fish without bones, etc
  • Light crackers or cookies

Foods to never pack for lunch while your child wears braces:

  • Nuts
  • Popcorn
  • Corn chips
  • Hard pretzels
  • Chewy, hard crusts (like pizza crust)
  • Very sticky or crunchy peanut butter
  • Hard or sticky candy (such as gummy bears, caramel, Skittles, Tootsie Rolls, taffy, etc.)

If you have any questions about foods to eat (or not to eat) with braces, please ask a member of our team. We are happy to help!

Stay In the Game: Wear a Mouthguard


Just as helmets, shoulder pads, and knee pads are worn to protect against sports-related injuries, mouth guards are equally important as protective gear. Mouth guards help prevent injury to the oral cavity, especially to the teeth, lips, cheeks, and tongue. Even athletes who wear helmets or face shields—such as football, hockey, and lacrosse players—should wear mouth guards, since they also protect against head-and-neck injuries by helping to cushion blows that otherwise could result in a concussion or worse.


Earn Rewards Points by Reviewing us Online!
