- October: American National Orthodontics Month

October is when the weather starts to get a little chilly: heavy jackets might come out of storage and the summer clothing gets packed away. But October means something a little different in USA because this is National Orthodontic Health Month.

During October, orthodontic clinics all over the country work together to promote their services and inform the community about the important work they do.

National Orthodontic Health Month is an awareness campaign created cooperatively by orthodontists and other dental health professionals. During this month, dental and orthodontic health is promoted. This is a great time to get your questions answered by dental professionals and to learn more about exactly what an orthodontist can do for you and your family. Events held in connection with National Orthodontic Health Month are also an opportunity for orthodontists to come out and meet community members.

According to the American Academy of Orthodontics, “Straight teeth not only look good, they also give you a good bite. So it’s easier to bite, chew, and speak.” That means receiving proper care from an orthodontist won’t just make you more confident about your smile, it can improve your health too. 

Dental health is something that affects everyone; healthy teeth and gums contribute to a healthy smile and a lifetime of comfort and well-being. Orthodontists are just one of the various dental practitioners you could visit at some point in your life, so taking a little time to learn who we are and what we do is certain to be a helpful experience.
