dental health month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

Keep Your #SkeltonBraces Healthy!

Here at Skelton Orthodontics, we want all our patients to practice good dental hygiene year-round! Keeping your mouth healthy helps keep your whole body healthy! The month of February is recognized by the American Dental Association as National Children's Dental Health Month.

Dental health is especially important during orthodontic treatment! The ADA encourages brushing, flossing, and eating healthy daily to maintain a healthy mouth.  Also, drinking more water instead of beverages with added sugar will help to ensure good dental hygiene.

Spread the message about National Children's Dental Health Month! In doing so, you will help Dr. Skelton create the best smiles for smiles and miles!

Continuing Education 2016: Success!

Every year during the fall, Dr. Aimee Skelton and her team host a continuing education event. This is an event where local dentists and their staff come to grow their knowledge about the dental field!

This year, with the help of Nashville Dental, the Skelton Orthodontics team welcomed Dr. Jon Holmes, DMD, MD, FACS, FICD as the guest speaker. Dr. Holmes is an oral surgeon from Birmingham who happens to love educating others about oral surgery.

We had so much fun giving away door prizes and taking pictures on our photo booth!

After learning about new oral surgery techniques and screening procedures, our attendees enjoyed a great lunch catered by Kudzu Cafe in Section, Al! We also had fantastic cupcakes and cookies provided by Nancy's Lunchbox in Rainsville!

We also hosted a CPR certification course for our attendees. This service was provided by Fort Payne Fire & Rescue.

Dr. Aimee Skelton and the Skelton Orthodontics team wants to thank everyone who participated in the 2016 Continuing Education event. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!
