It’s National Smile Week, and an ideal time for Dr. Collins and our dedicated staff at Parker Orthodontics to remind our patients to practice good oral hygiene to keep those teeth shining during your orthodontic treatment! That of course includes brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding foods that can stain your teeth such as tea and coffee and visiting your general dentist for checkups and cleanings.
And remember to smile at people you come across throughout the week, whether you know them or not! Smiles are contagious, and are GREAT to give and receive. In addition, did you know that smiling can actually help you live longer, according to a recent study? We hope you're having a wonderful summer! We have some great patient contests coming soon - stay tuned!
