Thanksgiving With Joy And Gratitude

Thanksgiving Gratitude Waterville Augusta MEHere at MK Orthodontics, 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

Halloween “Treats”…Do’s and Don’ts

Halloween Treats Waterville MEYou 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 MK Orthodontics 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 MK Orthodontics in Waterville or Augusta ME, 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.

October in National Orthodontic Health Month

Orthodontic Health Month at MK Orthodontics in Augusta and Waterville MEDid you know that October is National Orthodontic Health Month?  Dr. Michal Kleinlerer and her team at MK Orthodontics want you to join us in celebrating the power of a smile during October.

You only get one chance to make a first impression, no matter what your age 12, 16 or 60! A perfect smile is one of your best and life long assets. Whether you are meeting new friends or interviewing for a job, a smile is important to building both personal and business relationships. It is a well-known fact that straight teeth and a great smile builds self-esteem, confidence, and influences how you present yourself to the world. Orthodontic treatment is an investment in the future.

Our goal this year is to spread the word in in the Augusta and Waterville ME areas that October is National Orthodontic Health Month and its purpose is to reinforce the need for an orthodontic evaluation. You are never too young or too old if your bite or smile needs correction.Read More
