February is Dental Health Month

Did you know that dental health has an entire month dedicated to it? February has been named National Children's Dental Health Month to help create awareness of the importance of understanding how to keep your mouth healthy. The health of your teeth and mouth are directly related to your overall health!

Dental Health Month Contest

To celebrate, Skelton Orthodontics wants to test your dental knowledge with some fun facts. Think you can answer all of the questions correctly? Follow us on our Facebook page to be notified when the contest begins!

You can enter the contest in office and online! Simply answer six questions and you will be entered to win a FREE Waterpik Water Flosser! One lucky winner will be drawn at the end of the month. Good luck to all!

Need Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics plays a vital role in the health of your teeth. It is important that your jaws and bite align correctly for chewing and swallowing. In addition, your teeth need to be in a position where the majority of the surface area can be cleaned. Gum disease develops when bacteria builds up and straight teeth help solve this problem!

If you want more information about orthodontic treatment, contact us today! Dr. Aimee Skelton offers complimentary consultations for both braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. We will design a unique treatment plan for each patient to fit your needs and your budget. Our team is happy to answer any questions you might have!

Skelton Orthodontics Smilestar Spotlight: Abby Grace

Dr. Aimee Skelton is excited to have a fantastic group of patients represent her practice as Smilestars! The first Smilestar winner that we would like to recognize is Abby Grace!

Meet Abby Grace

Want to know more about Abby Grace? Check out her interview below!


Q: What is your favorite part about being a Skelton Orthodontics SmileStar?

A: I love being a Smile Star because to me attitude is
everything and having a smile on your face, a smile you’re confident in can completely
turn your life around.

Q: What is your favorite place to go in Fort Payne and why?

A: The Spot. Even though I’m not a coffee junkie or anything
I absolutely love the atmosphere of that place. It’s the perfect spot to just
curl up with a book, a warm drink and some great friends.

Q: What did you enjoy about your orthodontic treatment at Skelton Orthodontics?

A: Most definitely the staff! I had my braces for 3 years
and I never once had a bad experience at Skelton. Everyone who works there is
always so nice and friendly!

Q: What do you like to do on the weekends?

A: On the weekends I’m often cheering on the Sylvania Rams, spending time with the people I love and hopefully finding a little time to shop in between.

Q: Tell us three fun facts about you!

A: 1) This year I was Sylvania’s sophomore homecoming attendant 2) I have zero stage freight. Some of my favorite things are singing/talking at church, doing theatre at NACC or pageants (really just being on stage!)  3) My biggest goal in life is for people to see Jesus through me.

Q: Is there a volunteer/community event you enjoy working with or attending?

A: At my church we have a Charlotte’s Shoe Box Ministry and
in the months before Christmas a lot of time and energy go into those 1200
boxes, but just knowing that it will make a difference in a child’s life makes
it worth it!

Q: What color do you feel best describes you and why?

A: Yellow! I believe in the importance of having a positive,
bubbly attitude, and always remembering to smile no matter the circumstances.
And nothing says bright, happy yellow quite like the joy that comes from Jesus.

Q: If you had to choose one song to be your “walk out song” and play every time you walk into a room, what would it be and why?

A: Sugar, Sugar but the Archies – I’d choose that song because it’s simply a feel-good song, one that you’re not too mad about if it gets stuck in your head.


Dr. Aimee Skelton and the Skelton Orthodontics team are so proud to have Abby Grace sport one of our smiles for miles and miles!

Relay for Life of Dekalb County is May 31, 2019 at VFW Fairgrounds.

We need your help with donations! The funds we raise will not only honor survivors and remember loved ones, but will also help give resources to cancer patients and their families. This could mean free rides to chemo appointments or free places to stay for patients. This also funds a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support.
