    Find Your Beautiful Smile and Help End Bullying at the Same Time

    October is National Orthodontic Health Month! It’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the dedication of our hard-working orthodontic team while educating about the benefits of orthodontic treatment. At the same time, it gives us a chance to partner with the American Academy of Orthodontics (AAO) on a very important issue in our communities. Keep reading to learn more!

    Why ortho?

    Did you know that orthodontic treatment provides benefits beyond aesthetics? Orthodontic problems such as misaligned teeth, bite issues and jaw abnormalities can cause serious oral health issues like tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wearing of tooth enamel, and more. Orthodontic treatment can help patients bite and chew their food with ease, improve the alignment of their teeth and jaws, improve their oral hygiene and lower their risk of gum disease. And, of course, it also provides a beautiful smile! For many patients, the results are life changing!

    Bullying Bites

    The AAO is observing National Orthodontic Health Month alongside National Bullying Prevention Month through their #BullyingBites campaign. Our Kentucky and Indiana teams will be partnering with the AAO all month long to help influence young people to commit to eliminating bullying. When you visit one of these practices in October, you’ll have the option to sign a pledge card to indicate you are committed to eliminating bullying. Our teams will also go orange on Wednesday, October 18, in honor of Unity Day! Unity Day, started by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, is the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month. Supporters wear orange to unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.
