Last week, I went to an elementary school to speak to 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders about braces and brushing their teeth. I love giving these presentations because the kids get so into it. After showing them a video of what it looks like when you get your braces put on, many of them told me that they felt “completely relieved” and “not terrified anymore.” I think that they thought that the braces had to be drilled into the teeth, but by the end of the video they were excited rather than scared of the process.

Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin with braces to celebrate National Orthodontic Health MonthIt seems that there is a month or day to celebrate everything. There’s National Sibling Day, National Brush Day, and my personal favorite, National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! Today, in addition to being Halloween, is National Caramel Apple Day!

We’re also wrapping up National Orthodontic Health Month. Orthodontic health is about making sure that you are taking care of those chompers while undergoing treatment with braces or Invisalign and beyond!  Here at Miami Orthodontic Specialists, we are also celebrating that our new office is open and that we can begin to share the gift of beautiful smiles in our new space.

P.S. If you have braces on, please don’t celebrate National Caramel Apple Day! 😉
