Boca Orthodontics Treatment as an Adult: Tech Advancements, the Truth Behind Smile Direct Club & More

So I had braces twice in my life. Once as a kid and once as a single adult woman living in New York City. It was glamorous, let me tell you…NOT. You don’t need to know all the details, but I had Invisalign (or the generic equivalent) on my top teeth and metal/ceramic braces on the bottom. And in 2019, I’m now considered “old school” by Boca orthodontics treatment professionals. Go figure.

But that’s okay by me! I like learning and honestly, I still have one tooth that bugs me. But after speaking to Dr. Marc Goldenberg of Goldenberg Orthodontics, I’m apparently not alone in my quest for perfect teeth. More and more adults are looking to improve their smiles!

The Essential Check-Up Checklist for Boca Raton Parents

Us parents tend to have a love/hate relationship with check-ups for our kids, am I right? Sure, they’re an important milestone for our Boca kids. They need that yearly physical! It’s the best way to track progress as our little ones grow with their trusted pediatrician. Whether you do a well check-up with your pediatrician before the start of summer camp or when the school year begins, or right around your child’s birthday, it’s important to get a baseline check-up to keep your Boca child the healthiest.

But what should a check-up consist of, anyway? We all know we need those updated school/camp forms, but how can we make sure our kids are staying on target in terms of wellness, exercise, nutrition, sleep, behavior, study habits, etc.?!

Taking Your Child with Autism to the Dentist

Did you know April is National Autism Awareness Month? This annual event was launched by the Autism Society to recognized those with ASD nearly 40 years ago, in 1970. In case you weren’t familiar, “ASD” stands for “autism spectrum disorder”. It’s a spectrum because each child is unique, with his or her unique set of characteristics.

Me being a local mom, and a fan of Boca Raton pediatric dentist Dr. Drew Popper, I picked up the phone to do my part. I naively thought I’d be helpful and try to raise Dr. Popper’s autism awareness this April. Needless to say, it was me who was behind the curve.

Guess who did the awareness raising? 😉 Here’s some of that awareness about autism and the dentist from Dr. Popper himself… Continue reading Taking Your Child with Autism to the Dentist
