Tampa, Fla., Sept. 27, 2012—October is National Orthodontic Health Month, a time for current and prospective orthodontic patients to discuss therapeutic options for achieving a beautiful smile, as well as the health benefits and self-confidence that result from it, according to Orthodontic Specialists of Florida (OSOF) and Orthodontic Specialists of New England (OSONE).
“Celebrating National Orthodontic Health Month means educating prospective patients about what treatment options are available to them, in addition to keeping current patients informed about orthodontic maintenance and their progress toward achieving a life-changing smile,” said Dr. Alan D. Shoopak, founder and owner of OSOF and OSONE.
Throughout the month and beyond, Dr. Shoopak is reminding those considering orthodontics that it is never too late to begin treatment. In fact, there are several new therapeutic options designed to accommodate the fast-paced lives of working adults. For people already in treatment, he recommends scheduling regular appointments and following an orthodontic-friendly diet, free of hard, sticky foods like the ones listed on the group’s Facebook page.

According to Dr. Shoopak, “Not all problems are visible, so a thorough screening with an accredited orthodontic specialist is recommended.”
