Happy Holidays to all from the orthodontic office of Lisa P. Howard DDS MS! This is the time of year where giving means more than receiving. To see the joy on a loved one’s face as they look in their stocking or open a present is truly what giving is about. The Team at Dr. Howard’s office would like to share some stocking stuffer ideas for your consideration. All of these suggestions apply to patients of different ages whether or not they are wearing braces or Invisalign.
Now is the time to start thinking of the perfect gift for your special teen or adult in your life. What better way to express your sentiments and thoughts than to give someone you love the beautiful smile they always wanted. An Invisalign Smile is the perfect Holiday gift!
For the majority of people, celebrations, parties, holiday treats, cookies, and candy are all part of the holiday celebration. But for teens and adults in braces, it can be challenging to say the least. Invisalign gives a person the freedom to enjoy the holiday season and all of the things that come with it. It is also a time for laughter and lots of family photos. Is there someone in your family or special loved one who never smiles for the camera because they are embarrassed about their teeth and their smile? Invisalign is the perfect solution and the ideal way to show them you care. Read More
Here at the orthodontic office of Lisa P. Howard DDS MS, our team believes in the simple power of gratitude. What better time of the year to express our gratitude than Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving brings to mind different thoughts to different people.
To most, it brings visions of a family Thanksgiving feast with roast turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing with yummy gravy, cranberries, squash, and of course…pumpkin pie! To a student away at school, it may mean coming home to be with those they miss and possibly some much needed down time from the daily rigors of school and studying. Then again for others…are you ready for some football… a day off from work… or a long weekend?Read More

You have all heard about the damage that sugar and certain “sticky” candies can do to your teeth and your braces when undergoing orthodontic treatment. Well, our Team at the orthodontic office of Lisa P. Howard DDS MS wants to remind all of our patients and future patients about the dangers one more time. We know Halloween is supposed to be a fun time of year for kids of all ages… but it can turn into a “nightmare” of damaged braces for kids and parents if the wrong types of treats are consumed. Not only the discomfort involved as a result of broken wires and brackets but also the inconvenience of coming office for an extra visit with your busy school and/or work schedules.
Here at the orthodontic office of Lisa P. Howard DDS MS, we love Halloween but we also have a responsibility to increase the awareness of potential damage certain candies can cause if patients are not careful about which treats to eat.
