Cold and flu season is here - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that a common cold usually includes sneezing, runny nose, sore throat and coughing. Symptoms can last for up to two weeks.
To promote a healthy and clean environment, Dr. Neil Warshawsky and our entire staff give a great deal of attention to sanitation and sterilization in our office at all times, as well as following all requirements for sterilizing instruments and work surfaces. For the protection of other patients and our staff at Get It Straight Orthodontics, we always ask that patients reschedule their appointments if they have any type of cold or illness that can infect others.
And remember to constantly wash your hands and avoid contact with those who are ill! Stay healthy!

Happy October! For those who don't know, it’s National Orthodontic Health Month. This month-long event is organized by our pals at the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.
Dr. Neil Warshawsky and our team realize that this is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of orthodontists like Dr. Neil and other dental professionals in Illinois.
The AAO recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call, ask us on Facebook, or ask us at Get It Straight Orthodontics during your visit this month!

At Get It Straight Orthodontics, we love making our patients feel welcome in our fun and friendly office. That's why we are excited to be adding the Kinect game system to our waiting room. We had a great time playing it, and we know that you will enjoy it as well. The next time your waiting for an appointment, try it out!

Be sure to check out this video to learn more about Tracy's experience with lingual braces, and see as she gets her braces off with orthodontist Dr. Neil Warshawsky.
