Did you know that more than 1/3 of adults in the United States are not happy with their smile? And 36% of those adults who aren’t happy with their smile think they would have a better social life with better teeth!
October is National Orthodontic Health Month, so remind your patients of the importance of a healthy, beautiful smile. Great Expressions Dental Centers developed an infographic full of fun facts about orthodontics (see right).
To help support Orthodontic Health Month, the American Association of Orthodontists has designed special promotional posters and fliers.
The AAO is also distributing recipes for braces-friendly Halloween treats to food editors nationwide. The recipes, including “Mummy Pizza Biscuits,” “Scary Skull and Ghastly Ghost Cookies” and “Spooky Spider Web Bean Dip,” are also available to AAO members to download and distribute to patient families.
