Sign Up for Skelton Smilepoints Today!

Our previous Skelton Rewards system has gotten a face-lift! We love rewarding our patients for "good behavior" during orthodontic treatment. Read more about our new Smilepoints program below!

We are thrilled to debut the Skelton Smilepoints program! This rewards system allows our patients to track their own rewards and work toward specific prizes.

"How do I earn Skelton Smilepoints?"

Each patient will receive a rewards card like this one:

It is the patient's responsibility to keep up with the punch card! Once the punch card is filled, patients will choose from a great selection of #SkeltonBraces merchandise!

Our prizes include custom camo hats, tshirts, and a Skelton Orthodontics tumbler. We even have speakers and ear buds!

We hope you are as excited about this new rewards system as we are!

Don't hesitate to ask your assistant if you have any questions!

continuing education

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!
