Coming Soon --- SPRING :) a time to ditch those winter coats and put on our rain boots and enjoy some spring air !!

Some Tips for this year ---

Prepare a kit with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss ( to use between meals), wax, and lip balm (for dry lips). Carry this with you at all times. This way if something is in your braces you don't have to wait for someone to tell you. ( We both know most will just smile and stare). :P

Even if you're self-conscious about you braces, don't be afraid to smile - people actually notice your mouth more when it's clear you're trying to hide something. Plus, braces are very common, so there's no reason to be ashamed of them. You're on your way to a perfect smile!

Don't Forget ---

May 15th - April 1st we will be renovating our office - No April Fooling :)

We thank you for your understanding and patience and want to let you know that we will do the best we can to accommodate any urgent matters. We will try to have someone on staff to answer our phones Monday-Thrusday during our normal business hours from 8-5pm.

With that exciting news, we hope everyone has a good Easter and remembers to be safe. A list of candy do's and don'ts can be found on our October Blog. If you have any additional questions about candy feel free to call. :)
