Game Changers

Recent advances in orthodontics have enabled us to provide new treatments to correct malocclusions in about half the time. What is a malocclusion? A malocclusion is a misalignment of the teeth and the way that the upper and lower teeth fit together. In my orthodontic residency, we were taught that this type of bite could only be corrected with JAW SURGERY.  This patient not only was treated nonsurgical but he also had no braces. We treated him with Invisalign® only and he used Acceledent®. Progressing weekly, he yielded phenomenal results with tremendous speed and comfort.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand

Posted on July 10, 2015

WHO IS ALEX?  Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $100 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 475 pediatric cancer research projects nationally. For more information on Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, visit Our office is so touched by Alex’s story we wanted to do our part and help make a difference!
