Happy National Smile Month!
Celebrate National Smile Month May 17 – June 17.
National Smile Month is an oral health campaign that starts on May 17th and ends on June 17th. The theme of this campaign aligns closely with our philosophy here at Adirondack Orthodontics: “Everyone deserves a healthy smile.” We hope you join us in celebrating this month and promoting the value of a healthy smile. Take a look at some of the key messages we’ll be sharing during National Smile Month as well as ways we work to create a world where everyone has a healthy smile.
Keys to Better Oral Health
At Adirondack Orthodontics, we hope to equip our patients with both the orthodontic treatment they need and the skills to take care of their mouths and smiles for the long haul. We are always seeking ways to help educate our patients and connect them with the resources they need to achieve healthy, beautiful smiles. We encourage you to read through our resources page to find out how to care for your Invisalign aligners or braces and to learn what’s new at Adirondack Orthodontics.
National Smile Month encourages the same, offering some key tips for improving oral health. These tips include brushing your teeth twice a day (once during the day and once at night) with fluoride toothpaste and cleaning between your teeth by flossing once a day. In addition, limit your consumption of sugary foods and drinks (check out this list of foods to avoid!). We recommend being evaluated by an orthodontist by age 7, learn about the benefits of early treatment here! Last, but not least, visit a dentist regularly!
If you need any more information on how to care for your oral health, don’t hesitate to contact our team, or visit our resources page, where you can find answers to many frequently asked questions!
Supporting Patients in the Capital Region & Beyond
The team at Adirondack Orthodontics believes that everyone deserves a healthy smile. In fact, we have teamed up with two local teens to help make braces even more accessible to families in the Capital Region. Sam and Ben Sosnovsky from Guilderland, NY, were concerned about their teeth and proper dental care from a young age. The twins, at age 12, reached out to Adirondack Orthodontics to start the process of getting their very best smiles.
Both Sam and Ben were extremely satisfied with their smile results and felt that getting their braces and having their dental work completed prior to high school positively impacted their lives. Wanting others to have the same experience, they then committed to passing their happiness along. By working multiple jobs and saving money, they collected $4,000 to donate to under-privileged area residents who needed dental care but were otherwise unable to afford it.
The twins reached out to Adirondack Orthodontics to express their passion and dedication to help. Dr. B, impressed by the young men, decided to match their earnings and help distribute it to deserving residents in the Capital Region and beyond. Want to know more? Check out the full article here!
Just like Sam and Ben, we believe that everyone deserves a healthy smile and we want to do what we can to ensure that happens! We also offer customized, interest-free payment plans and discounts to families in the Capital Region to make sure everyone can achieve the smile they deserve. If anything is standing in the way of your or your child’s orthodontic treatment, please reach out to us. We will work with you to provide you with the best care, no matter your financial situation.
