Carter Orthodontics is proud to announce the formation of the Smile For A Lifetime Foundation, whichÂ is a charitable, non-profit organization that provides free orthodontic care to individuals who may not have the opportunity to acquire orthodontic treatment. It is our mission to create self confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in the CSRA in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and our community. The Smile For A Lifetime Foundation is governed by a Board of community leaders who evaluate, on a case-by-case basis, orthodontic and financial needs of referrals to the Foundation. The Board will meet quarterly to select six (6) individuals who have financial challenges, special situations, and orthodontic needs.We provide two (2) free orthodontic treatments per month, twenty-four (24) cases per year. This treatment is provided pro bono by Carter Orthodontics, an approximate $150,000 donation per year. The Foundation actively seeks Donors and Partners to help defray the costs of media and administrative services, as well as any adjunctive dental care these patients may need. Anyone can recommend applicants — parents, grandparents, teachers, friends, school counselors, ministers, dentists, hygienists, and childrenâ€™s advocates â€“ by visiting www.carterorthodontics.com and downloading an application. The website also provides helpful guidelines to the application process.
Watch this 15 minute video and SMILE!
I just learned of a FREE phone search engine that will connect you to any business. It will also text you the info, and it’ll even MAP it if you have an internet connection. How good is that?!?
Dental ImplantsÂ – Video
Here is a great video showing how dental implants are done. Dental implants have come a long way over the years and can be used to replace missing front and back teeth. Think of them as ‘artificial roots’ that will then have crowns (caps) placed on top of them. It’s the next best thing to have real teeth again!
Damon System Video-Video
This is a super video discussing the outstanding results obtained using the Damon Braces and Damon Wires. The system is “self-ligating”, meaning the wires and braces are nearly friction free. This reduction in friction allows the orthodontist to apply much lighter forces with decreased numbers of adjustments. And the wires are high tech, body-heat activated. This means the wires are ‘soft’ when initially placed, then become ‘springy’ as the wire warms to body temperature. All this translates to less pain, fewer orthodontic visits, and faster treatment! Check out the video. Technology at it’s best!!!
