Play it safe this spring, from Newhart Orthodontics

April 28th, 2011

With spring here, many children, teens and adults in the Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles communities will once again pick up the ball, bring the bat out of seasonal retirement, and lace up their cleats to hit the fields for the return of spring sports! April is National Facial Protection Month, and during this time, (Insert Name of Doctor) and our dedicated team urge our young athletes to play it safe when out on the field. According to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation, children, high-school athletes and adults will have more than 5,000,000 teeth knocked out in sporting events this year.

Here are a few ways to ensure your mouth’s safety this spring, courtesy of our friends at the American Association of Orthodontists:
Wear mouth guards for contact sports such as baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse.

Wear a helmet
Wear protective eyewear
Wear a face shield to avoid scratched or bruised skin
Be alert, even as a spectator

We hope that helps. Protective gear is vital for anyone engaging in tooth or mouth-threatening activities. If you have any further questions about any of these tips, please contact Dr. Newhart. Stay safe and have fun!

Happy Earth Day!

Whether lending your helping hand to plant trees or grasses or getting out volunteering in various projects in the Los Angeles area, today is our opportunity to get involved in making our year-round impact in the community. Dr. Newhart wants to know: Did you make a difference today? Tell us, what Earth Day-related activities did you accomplish? How long have you participated in helping our community and planet?

At Newhart Orthodontics, we support Earth Day, which marks its 41th anniversary today and is designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for our environment and ecosystem.

Newhart Orthodontics Patients- Leaders in the Community

April 5th, 2011

Cass is one of the fine young men in our practice. He completed treatment just in time for graduation. What an outstanding smile! Young people like Cass love the self-confidence they feel with a beautiful smile. With his leadership qualities, we expect great things for his future.

Working with young men and women and watching them grow up in our practice is one of the most satisfying aspects of practicing orthodontics. I love my job!
