SmileStar Voting

The 2018 Top 30 SmileStars have been chosen, and Dr. Skelton and the Skelton Orthodontics team could not be more thrilled about it! We would like to thank everyone who submitted their nomination for the 2018 SmileStar contest. We appreciate you taking the time to submit your smile. They were all amazing!

The Top 30 have been selected and voting starts August 20th. We want the top 10 Skelton Orthodontics SmileStars to best represent Fort Payne and the surrounding areas. We invite YOU to go in and vote for your favorites! Please go online and submit your vote for up to 10 SmileStars. Click HERE to cast your vote, and be sure to share the link with others!

If your smile is not part of this year’s Top 30, we encourage you to try again on our next run of SmileStar! It was a close and hard decision for our panel of judges to choose between all of the beautiful Skelton smiles to only have 30 move on to the next round of voting!

Voting will end on September 28th, and the winners will be announced the following week. Be sure to check back to see who the winners will be!

Smile in Pink with us!

Dr. Aimee Skelton and her team support Breast Cancer Awareness Month every October with their promotion, Smile in Pink!

How does it work?

Dr. Skelton will donate $1 for each patient who chooses pink bands or power chains on their braces during October appointments. Then, the patient's picture is posted to an album on Facebook so everyone can see who Smiles in Pink! Each patient also signs a certificate showing their support. Those certificates are displayed in the office for the entire month!

Last year we raised over $200 for Breast Cancer Awareness! Show your support this year and Smile in Pink!
